The BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department recently got a nod from two leading industry publications. Four students and alumni were selected for the Art Directors Annual 87, a publication of the Art Directors Club that honors work in design and advertising. The Annual includes work by Jin Young Lee (BFA 2008 Graphic Design), James Kyung Yang (BFA Graphic Design 2007), Jeseok Yi (BFA Advertising 2008) and current student Jeong Jyn Yi. And the book itself also has an SVA connection: alumnus Scott Ballum (BFA 2005 Graphic Design) designed the Annual for the ADC.
The department is also well represented in Graphic Design USA, which named faculty members Brian Brindisi and Julia Hoffman (BFA 2002 Graphic Design) as two of their “People to Watch in 2009.” The January issue of the magazine includes interviews with both Brindisi and Hoffman. And HOW magazine’s 2009 International Design Annual includes work by four recent alumni: Sang Hee Jin (BFA 2008 Graphic Design), Jesse Kirsch (BFA 2008 Graphic Design), Kyung Yang and Zeynep Orbay (MFA 2008 Design) .
