Note: Career Tools workshops are experiential in nature and must be hosted in person. Programming will resume once we can reliably plan in-person events again.

The creative tools you need for whatever the industry throws at you.

In our rapidly-changing design industry, having the right creative tools is often what separates the best from the rest. So AIGA Portland brings you Career Tools, a practical professional development resource designed to provide relevant, ongoing, and experiential learning for Portland’s design community. Whether you’re looking to launch, change, or grow your design practice, Career Tools can help you make it happen.

What are Career Tools Workshops?

These quarterly in-person Career Tools events are designed to foster professional development through experiential learning. These fun and collaborative workshops provide information about new and useful tools in a collaborative and hands-on environment.
