Graphic design program to host annual portfolio show Saturday

NORFOLK, Neb. – Northeast Community College graphic design students will be showcasing their work during the program’s 11th annual portfolio show. This year’s event will be held Sat., May 8, from 1-4 p.m., in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk.

“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 Phillip Schimonitz graphic design 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.”

Schimonitz 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.
