Before I started at Sessions, I felt unsure of where to even start with building a portfolio. What kind of graphic design work is most sought after these days? Posters? Online ads? Book covers? These are all questions that have been answered during my time in this program. I feel much more confident in continuing to pursue graphic design as my career.
