Pune, India (PressExposure) April 28, 2013 -- Lokusdesign, one of the leading brand and package design firms, is going to host the first Behance Portfolio Review in Pune in collaboration with MIT Institute of Design. The event, supported by Worksmith aims at creating a platform to remove the barriers between talent and opportunity. This portfolio review would give design enthusiasts including commercial artists, freelancers, design students, academia and industry experts a chance to collaborate to discuss, understand and inform the latent talent in the city about the current scenario and future of the design industry.
Design enthusiasts are invited to share their portfolios in terms of Branding and Graphic design, Packaging design and Retail and Space design by 13th May 2013. Experts from the industry will review the top 20 portfolios. Throwing light on the event Mr. Shekhar Badve, Founder Director (Marketing and Strategy) said, "We at Lokusdesign believe in promoting fresh talent and giving them a chance to work on some of the top brands in the industry. Brand and Package design as an industry is evolving; brands in India realized the importance of this sector in creating engagement with their core products. Moreover, with global design firms entering the Indian markets, it is important that Indian designers are equipped to face the growing competition. The Behance Portfolio event aims at doing just that."
Seconding Shekhar on his views, Mr. Anant Chakradeo, Dean, MIT Institute of Design said "Design is an extremely niche sector in India and there is a lack of clarity amongst students in terms of the opportunities this sector provides. The Behance portfolio review event gives students a chance to collaborate with the experts in the industry to understand the global and national trends in order to expand their horizons"
The jury of the event will include stalwarts from the design Advertising and marketing fraternity. Design enthusiasts can submit their portfolio online at [http://worksmith.in/behancereviewpune/]. The Event is going to take place on 18th May 2013 at MCCI towers, ICC complex.
