AIGA Mentorship Program

AIGA Portland’s Mentorship Program is designed to connect student designers with professional mentors from our own creative community. During the eight-week program mentees & mentors meet weekly for digital one-on-one sessions. The program is lightly structured to maximize flexibility with the individuals’ pre-established goals and expectations. The initial 2021 Mentorship Program will take place during the winter term, running from January 16, 2021 – March 13, 2021. The deadline to apply is December 4, 2020 for both mentors and mentees. Must be an AIGA member to participate. Student Membership is $50 a year.

Collage Club: Potluck!

The holidays are right around the corner, and you know what that means! — holiday parties, quality time with friends and family, and some questionable potluck side dishes…if only! Since we are unable to host an in-person potluck, we have created a virtual collage event where everyone can bring in and share digital collage assets – potluck style! Our plan is to create a holiday-inspired collage story for the next collage club zine, and we need your help!
Everyone who signs up will be given a theme to base their asset collection around. We will then convene over zoom to hang out, enjoy our own food and drink, and build collages.

Register now at! More details will be sent to registered participants.
