The Gauntlet: Studio Tour & Portfolio Review 2017


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.

Fridays in April and May, 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 Atypic, BOLTGROUP, LGA, Red Ventures, and Theory House.

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.

Event registration ends on Friday, March 31 at 10 pm.
The event kicks off on Friday, April 7 at 1:30 pm.
