Folio Reviews

Folio Reviews


Vertigo is pleased to offer one-on-one personal folio reviews to design students, and junior and mid-weight graphic designers.



Because we know how frustrating it can be to attend folio review panels and speed-networking industry events where feedback and conversation feels rushed and limited, to the point where you don’t get a chance to ask any questions and you forget everything the second you leave.

We also know how discouraging it can be to reach out to studios and agencies asking for folio feedback and not get a response, even after following up. We know, because we’ve been there too.


What’s Involved

Feedback is crucial to progress, improvement, clarity, and growth. With our folio review sessions you’ll have direct access to our creative director, Mirella Marie, who’ll give you honest feedback, recommendations for improvement, and answers to your general design and industry questions.


What’s Included

Sessions are held in Coburg, Melbourne, every Friday during April and May. They run for one hour and include:

— Folio review (maximum 5 projects)
— General design and industry Q&A
— Review of any recommended changes implemented after your session (via email)


Students: $75 + GST
Junior and mid-weight designers: $150 + GST

Our aim is to make these sessions affordable and accessible to designers at all levels.


"Consulting Mirella for folio feedback was an invaluable experience. At a cross roads in my early graphic design career, Mirella gave me honest and helpful feedback on my folio, reflected on my current skill set and also discussed my goals and future directions. As a junior graphic designer it's rare to have access to honest advice and feedback from seniors within the industry, particularly senior females, so having the one on one interaction with Mirella was of huge assistance to me."

— Shelby De Fazio, Designer
