Covid-eo Crits

So how do you do a portfolio night without a pub? Simple. You use Zoom, and everyone’s lounge/bedroom/office as the location.

Every Tuesday (until lockdown is over) from 6-7:15 we’ll organise 2 x 30 minute book crits with industry folk for as many people as we can handle on one Zoom call.

We’re currently at 12 teams/solos a session and we’ve had people from Ogilvy, Atomic, The And Partnership, Wunderman Thompson, Cult LDN, Waste Creative, Amazon, MullenLowe, Grey, Havas, Draftline, Drum, Venture Stream & VCCP offering advice.

How does it work?

  • Register your interest – agency or student – using the forms below.
  • We’ll send you a meeting invite on your specific day.
  • You log on at 6pm.
  • We’ll pair you up. You can even bring your creative partner (on both sides) as we can put you all in the same room.
  • Crits last 30 mins you’ll see two lots of industry peeps each session.

How will people crit my work?

You’ll be able to screenshare in the chat room, so please make sure you have a PDF or a website ready to share. The industry peeps also have the opportunity to see your work prior.

Things to note
