*Due in great part to the pandemic, this year we have had to limit our registration to Chapman University Graphic Design Seniors. We are in great hope that next year’s OC Portfolio Review will once again be in-person, and open to the full design student community. Please accept our sincere apologies for these limitations. 



Dear Design Professional,


The OC Portfolio Review requests your professional skills. 


The Graphic Design Program at Chapman University invites you to participate as mentors and reviewers at the 18th Annual OC Portfolio Review. As you may know, every Spring we hold the Portfolio Review as a capstone event for our Graphic Design seniors and juniors. 


We seek professional designers to share their experience and time with our Graphic Design students and wish to include you in our team of reviewers.

Please Register here for a great event. 

Please RSVP by Monday, March 19, via this link to our registration form.


About the Event


Last year, due to COVID-19, we changed from in-person to an online format. This year, we are going online again, but with a more streamlined interface and plan. As we move forward toward the event, we’ll send specific information. For now the event is to take place on Saturday, April 24th, via a series of Zoom interviews.

Please consider attending the event, as it’s a major part of both our curriculum and a great resource for businesses and professionals to engage and meet with the next generation of designers as we train them and prepare them for professional life.


For questions, or clarifications please email ocportfolioreview@chapman.edu


On behalf of my colleagues Professors Eric Chimenti, Claudine Jaenichen and myself, I look forward to seeing you there!
