Portfolio Night
May 21, 2014

You’ve put your blood, sweat and tears into your portfolio. Now it’s time to show the world you have what it takes to break into the advertising industry.

Truth is, it’s extremely hard to get face time with creative directors.

Portfolio Night is not only a great opportunity to showcase your hard work to many of the top directors in your city, but you’ll also get crucial one-on-one face time with them as well. You’ll make new contacts and also gain valuable advice from industry superstars on how to make your portfolio shine.

After all, they were once just like you.

Blood, Sweat & Tears

To showcase the countless hours, sleepless nights, killed ideas and ambitious drive that go into crafting the perfect portfolio and breaking into the advertising industry as a young creative, ADC commissioned 12 artists from the ADC Young Guns community and ADC Membership to create their own interpretation of the phrase "Blood, Sweat and Tears."

On a good day, I’m 90% satisfied, which is fine; I don’t think one should ever be 100% satisfied because then there is nothing left to aspire to.

I’ve always taken risks because I’m convinced that without them, I’ll never feel a sense of accomplishment.
