Digital Portfolio Workshop

Many universities and some colleges require a digital portfolio in January – and getting it right can be tricky.  Here we’ll show you how to make one (and make it outstanding!).  Bring along a couple of pieces of work to be scanned & photographed in DJCAD’s pro facilities and we’ll get you started. Follow up sessions will be held in November and December.
