Portfolio Slam

Community April 18, 2017

frog Portfolio Slam is a motley crew of junior talent with the potential to transform design through technology, visual and interaction, who showcased their work and skills at our New York studio.




Event Design

Aimed at inspiring students to think beyond traditional design roles, the event allowed students to connect on multiple levels. 40 applicants received an invitation to attend the event, they participated in 1:1 sessions with senior frogs and connected with each other to share their burgeoning insight.

The main event featured a welcome session by our Executive Creative Director, two rounds of 10 minute 1:1 sessions with senior members of our New York team — from visual to interactive, to design technology and strategy. The event ended with a fun networking session alongside hearty snacks and refreshments, followed by an exclusive tour of our DUMBO studio.




Reflection

Not only did the event attract over 200 applicants, but many also commented that it was a more valuable experience than most career fairs they went to, and students left feeling motivated and energised to hone their skills, embrace their secret passions and transform the world through design.
