Several SVA alumni are spicing up this spring’s magazine racks. Daniel Um (BFA 1999 Graphic Design) served as art director for this year’s Interior Design magazine Buyer’s Guide, which is available now. And in the photography section, Photo District News (PDN) has selected two recent alumni from the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department for its 2007 Photo Annual: Erin Gleeson and Dina Kantor (both 2007) will have work included in the annual, part of the May 2007 issue of PDN.
In other publications news, two students from faculty member Mitch Shostak’s Communication Graphic Design course have won Honorable Mentions in the second annual Society of Publication Designers Student Design Competition. BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department student Tina Nguyen was the first-place Honorable Mention winner, earning a summer internship at Fortune magazine; fellow student Shin-A Kang was the competition’s third place Honorable Mention. Both of their winning magazine designs were selected from a field of more than 175 entries.
