Brian Lightbody, a fourth-year advertising and graphic design student, is the chosen designer for the newly mounted billboard on the side of SVA’s 209 East 23rd Street building. His design was selected out of several proposed by students in instructor James Victore’s portfolio class. The billboard includes a playful, doodle-filled sketchbook with the New York City skyline sneaking in on either side of the page. The 38’ x 28’ vinyl billboard is scheduled to be on view until the start of the 2004-05 academic year.
Lightbody and an image of his SVA billboard will also be highlighted in the January/February 2004 “Rising Stars” issue of Step Inside Design magazine.
