Yesterday afternoon I was asked to attend the DNA portfolio surgery at the Soup Kitchen, in the Northern Quarter by University of Salford, were I had the opportunity to look through some up and coming students design portfolios.
Some really great work was on show from some very talented students. The turn out for the event was fantastic and the Designers Northern Alliance (DNA) should be very proud of their achievements in putting this event together.
It was a fantastic opportunity for design students to have their portfolios viewed and commented on before they go out into the big bad world of industry and start attending interviews for real.
I was lucky enough to be one of the "Surgeons" commenting on the work being shown and it was encouraging to see some of the creative work that the students are going to be armed with on their quest to find gainful employment over the coming months.
