Matchmaking it is! Again we made space for online portfolio reviews and recruitment at our hybrid edition of The Art Department.
Portfolio review (normal)
The classic review as you know it.
Portfolio review for starters & students
The name says it all: we’d like to reserve a few time slots for beginners who don’t really have a huge portfolio yet and might be looking for more basic tips & tricks. How do you build your portfolio? Where do you start?
Studios who are looking for new talent can recruit during TAD2020. If they are actively recruiting for a specific role, they’ll of course provide a job description.
To ensure that we can make the right match between people and studios, all applications will be checked first by members from the Playgrounds team.
