Icograda's commitment to design education and design as a medium for social change is embodied in the initiative.  The aim is to pair design professionals at the forefront of the industry with the talented, up-and-coming designers of tomorrow - fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between Mentor and Mentee and facilitating a global exchange of ideas.  

This is a unique opportunity for the Icograda network to create new links, foster growth for emerging designers and engage limitless potential through creative leadership.

Interested individuals should fill out the Mentor Profile form.

ADAA Mentorship program

The ADAA Mentorship program is open to all student participating to the ADAA. The program is divided into two parts; The Portfolio review, and the 5 | 5 | 5 Adobe Mentorship Program.

Each Mentor works with 10 students. One of the students is selected to receive a 5-month mentorship dialogue, and the remaining nine students receive a portfolio review.
  • 5 | 5 | 5 Adobe Mentorship Program: The mentorship consists of 5 one-on-one virtual sessions with 5 predetermined objectives.
  • Portfolio review: The portfolio review consists of providing comments, advice, and feedback for the students.

Mentorships and portfolio reviews can be very flexible, since they are done virtually. The pair creates their own agenda, to ensure a mutually rewarding experience.
