Madison, WI, December 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Extra Bold Portfolio School offers open portfolio reviews free of charge. Starting in January 2009, every 2nd Monday of the month from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, anyone can bring in their portfolio to receive feedback and advice. Interested persons should call 608-250-XBLD (9253) first to reserve a time slot.
This is a complementary service and not a form of recruitment; but after getting a sample of Extra Bold’s expertise, some might want to learn more about the wide variety of courses offered at the school. There are currently 10-week mini-courses in production, creative concepting, and account service, as well as year-long tuition sessions for advertising art director and copywriter training. The school will soon expand to include a year-long independent study course, and an advanced mini-course in layout/design/art direction.
Extra Bold Portfolio School began in 2006 and has graduated two classes. They've placed graduates in jobs in Milwaukee and Chicago, and have helped students get internships in Madison and Minneapolis. Alongside the school, the Extra Bold Ad Shop is a student-staffed agency that works with real clients including Cabinet Masters, Habitat Restore, Rubin’s Contemporary Furniture, and Edgewood Graduate & Professional Studies.
