NORFOLK – Northeast Community College graphic design students will be showcasing their work during the programs’ annual portfolio show. This year’s event will be held Sunday, May 7, from 2-5 p.m., in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus here.

“The Portfolio Show gives graphic design students who are about to graduate, a chance to present their work and hone their communications skills in preparation for job interviews,” said Jeanette Johnson, publications coordinator in Northeast’s marketing department and adjunct instructor. “In addition to creating a portfolio, these students developed personal resumes, cover letters, and business cards, as well as the promotional materials for the show.”

Johnson said the students have gathered their best and favorite projects from their previous classes and have spent most of the semester refining and preparing those pieces for the show.

“This Portfolio Show is meant to be the culmination of their college careers at Northeast and prepare them for entering the real world.”

Northeast’s AAS graphic design program emphasizes technical skill development using industry standard design software, as well as developing knowledge in the principles of design and artistic expression. Internships are also available with area businesses.




Taylor Friedrich, Newman Grove, a former graphic design student at Northeast Community College, discusses some of her work during the program’s “Portfolio Show” in 2016. This year’s show will be held Sunday, May 7, from 2-5 p.m. in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk.
