Portfolio Showcase

portfolio_show_fall_2016On December 15th, our graduates held a portfolio viewing at ACC’s Highland Campus.  This reception featured work of Visual Communication students in Graphic Design.

Portfolio instructor Russell Toynes describes the importance of this final class in the Graphic Design program:

“Developing a personal portfolio is one of the most challenging tasks a designer will face, second only to creating a personal brand — and our students have to do both in 16 short weeks. Just when I’m starting to worry that they are going to run out of time, they manage to impress me each and every semester with beautiful, thoughtful and strategic work that truly showcases their passion and talent.”

Breanna Whitener has also guided a portfolio class this fall and she is very enthusiastic about her students:

“These students have worked really hard on their portfolios, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the final result. I couldn’t be more excited for them and their future careers.”

Industry professionals, fellow students, faculty, family and friends attended the event to celebrate the accomplishments of these students. If you would like to see portfolios, you can see them here: Graduate Portfolio.
