Lokusdesign, a leading branding and packaging design consultancy, announces the launch of its Online Portfolio Review, a platform initiated for design students and professionals. Post the success of Behance Lokusdesign Portfolio Review event organised this year, this initiative aims to create a platform to showcase the creativity of young design professionals and students and gives them an opportunity to be reviewed by industry experts on a regular basis. Portfolios are an essential part of every designer’s repetoire, and this platform will help to facilitate them to collaborate and seek constructive feedback from industy experts for their past work. This will not only help budding designers to refine their work, but also, be known for great work through the online platform developed for this portfolio review.

Design students are invited to share their portfolios in distinct categories of visual communication, branding and packaging design. The registrations are now open and can be done through the Lokusdesign’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lokusdesign). The Review Panel includes well known industry experts namely Milinda Natu (Senior lecturer, Aesthetic & Visual Communication at Symbiosis International University), Smritee Chaturvedi (Marketing & Communication, Glaxosmith Kline), Aniket Pohekar (Deputy General Manager, Marketing- Bombay Dyeing- Bombay Realty) and Shekhar Badve (Founder Director, Strategy & Marketing- Lokusdesign).

Elaborating on the initiative, Shekhar Badve, Founder-Director, Lokusdesign added, “Throughout our careers from being students to professionals today, we, at Lokusdesign, have realised the importance of a well thought out platform to expose and create opportunities for the upcoming talent and groom them towards the expecations of the industry. After the Behance Lokusdeisgn portfolio review, we had many requests to have regular portfolio reviews from the students and young professionals who took part in the event, and we have decided to create an online portfolio review platform. Branding and Packaging design as an industry has evolved immensely there is a need to shorten the gap between industry needs and budding designer expectations and delivery. This online platform is one initiative to address this need.”

Interested designers for the online platform can register their details on the Lokusdesign Facebook page, and then follow the directions for submission of their portfolio. This online review would be implemented on a monthly basis, and entries would be open until the 20th of each month.
