Memac Ogilvy & Mather Bahrain hosted the Kingdom’s inaugural Portfolio Night 8 on Thursday May 20 2010. The event, which took place concurrently with more than 30 cities worldwide, was designed to provide aspiring designers with an introduction to the Kingdom’s top creative directors.
Portfolio Night 8 is the largest simultaneous advertising portfolio review ever held in the world. The event helps students and aspiring young creatives around the world break into the advertising industry as top creative directors from each participating city will review work and provide constructive feedback.
A few of our UCB students who are aspiring designers and media professionals participated and exhibited their work through portfolios. They enjoyed the evening and found the feedback from the Creative and Art directors, both informative and inspiring. This event proved as an excellent platform for our graduates to be recruited by well-known advertising and designing companies in Bahrain, by highlighting their talents and skills nurtured in the university.
