Portfolio Lab #3: Glug x Craft -- September 27th

It’s time for our third and final Portfolio Lab of 2018! And we're super excited to announce that this time, we're running it in association with Glug Leeds!


Thursday 27th September

*Before Glug starts at 6.


Dukes Studios, 3 Sheaf Street, Leeds, LS10 1HD


Our Portfolio Labs are a discreet but engaging meeting format for those progressing their design career, where you can ask specific questions or practice presenting aspects of your portfolio. It’s a no-pressure, friendly atmosphere.

Labs are aimed at designers and creatives of all levels, from recent graduates through to seasoned pros. We offer you the chance to sit down one-to-one, with leading independent creatives and designers from prominent brand, design, and digital studios here in the North. (And... it's free!!).

We run it with a bit of a speed dating format - with people moving around the room, speaking to two or three people on the day.


Ben Brears - Senior Designer at Robot Food
Katie Reeves - Creative Director at Jaywing
Andrew Brown - Creative Director at Brass
Frazer Sparham - UX & UI Designer at Parallax
Owen Turner - Creative Director and Founder at United by Design

We’ll try to match you up with the expert who would best suit your portfolio, depending on background and specialism, across brand, packaging, digital and illustration.

Craft Portfolio Labs are an opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed and discussed in detail, to make sure it’s working as hard as it needs to and does justice to your great work. We feel it’s an essential step in the job-hunting process – perfecting your portfolio and your presentation skills can be hard to do alone.

Glug - September 2018

Craft have partnered with Glug this time round - and we’re really happy to do so! Glug do a great job of championing the Leeds creative community. Their latest event, with the theme of What I Wish I'd Never Known, will follow on from our Portfolio Lab at Duke Studios so make sure you book a ticket for that too!

We’re looking forward to seeing some new faces and fantastic portfolios! Take a look at our Portfolio Labs page for even more helpful tips from industry experts, advice, direction, and upcoming event details.
