This and That
School of Visual Arts presents “This and That,” an exhibition of work by students in the BFA Advertising and BFA Design departments. Curated by 3D Design Chair Kevin O’Callaghan, the show features conceptual restaurant designs as well as other projects created over the past semester. The exhibition will be on view March 18 through April 5 at the SVA Gallery, 209 East 23 Street, New York City.
Participating students include: Elaine Ahn, Julia Becker, David Belmonte, Alexandra Bey, Vyacheslav Borts, Won Jun Choi, Jessie Gang, Shane Hennesey, Yu Kyung Hwang, Haruyo Kaneko, Jeong Woo Kim, Ji Youn Kim, Jeong Yun Kim, Yumi Kunz, Lillian Lewis, Nicole Martino, Daisy Millard, Amelia Modlin, Yuki Murata, Jonathas Nazareth, Stephen Pellegrino, Devinne Peterson, Lauren Ronquillo, Andrew Seetoh, Camille Sevaistre, Corey Thomas, Holly Trotta, and Eric Whitney.
Advertising students at SVA work with industry leaders to learn critical thinking coupled with executional skills that are supported by typographic expertise, digital production skill, and a mastery of design. As they advance through the curriculum, students move from working on single ads to developing entire campaigns that would include traditional and digital formats culminating in a portfolio that demonstrates their grasp of various creative roles, from art direction and copywriting to typography and T.V. commercials.
Under the guidance of Art Directors Club Hall of Fame laureates and AIGA medalists, graphic design students focus on conceptual problem solving based on visual literacy, technology skills, and aesthetic formalism. As they progress, students specialize in editorial, web, branding, poster, interactive, motion graphics, or 3D design, to prepare a portfolio that is engaging and marketable.
