Will you dare run The Gauntlet?
Be forewarned: The Gauntlet is not for the faint of heart. The Gauntlet is not for the thin-skinned. The Gauntlet is not for proponents of the status quo.
The Gauntlet is, however, for design students looking to get his or her portfolio in tip-top shape before that first job interview. This month-long event also kills two birds with one stone: students receive valuable feedback on their portfolios from industry veterans while visiting venerable local design studios in the process.
Each Friday in March, groups of students will visit a different participating Charlotte design studio to have their work critiqued by different sets of seasoned eyes. This year's list of star-studded agencies includes LGA, MODE, Atypic, and Red Ventures.
As part of the visit, each participating studio will give a tour of their facilities and offer lessons on what students should expect after graduation. In other words, this practice gauntlet will help you prepare for the true gauntlet: the real business world.
Date and Time:
Every Friday in March from 1 to 3 pm
Red Ventures, Luquire George Andrews (LGA), MODE, Atypic
Parking is available on-site at each agency.
