Odysseus Arms Brings Back Portfolio Night


By The Chicago Egotist / /

The One Club for Creativity’s Portfolio Night is back in San Francisco Thursday, June 1, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm, as Odysseus Arms co-founders Libby Brockhoff and Franklin Tipton stepped in to host the event at 575 Market Street (6-9 PM). It’s the first time since 2019 that Bay Area creative luminaries will evaluate and counsel the work of college students.

“Aspiring creative people need IRL exposure to creative directors now,” said Brockhoff. “They’ve been stuck behind screens for four years, and need to experience firsthand the electricity of advertising. There’s nothing more powerful than in-person reviews of your work by people who have been making brands matter for decades, and this is the one place you’re guaranteed to get that.”

The judges panel includes acclaimed, awarded creative talent from both independent and in-house agencies, led by Brockhoff and Tipton. The full panel:
