Event: KRDS Studio in Chennai has hosted our first Behance Portfolio Review Meet

Published on 02 Dec '16

KRDS has always encouraged young professionals and provided them with the right platform to exhibit their expertise. We often come together to initiate various interesting events with a motive to bring together creative professionals from all fields. Our most recent success was organizing the ‘Portfolio Review Week’ for Behance, that saw young minds come and participate from different parts of the country. The ‘Portfolio Review Week’ is a volunteer organized event that is conducted twice annually and has been previously hosted at various International venues.We were enthusiastic at the opportunity to bring creative minds under one roof to appreciate, analyse and acknowledge artistic caliber.

The five hour session was attended by 50 candidates and 4 jury members who were invited to judge the best work from the group. Designs were evaluated based on their proficiency and winners were chosen for each category as follow :

Arvind Kumar for the best Visual Designs
Ravi Ganesh Vijayakumar for the best Illustrations
Krishna Kumar for the best Motion Graphics

The event has been extensively covered on social media and we had more than 5,000 people following our Facebook live.

The Behance Portfolio review meet saw talents come in from various parts of the country and share among themselves the love for art. The Halloween themed set-up helped create an artistic atmosphere for the event and grabbed everyone’s attention. Our sincere thanks to everyone who helped host the review meet and to the jury who helped us immensely.

A big thank you as well to our Jury members for their participation and precious recommendations:
