Several 2009 graduates from the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department were among the winners of this year’s One Show College Competition. The annual competition is organized by The One Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in advertising. This year, students were asked to reposition a local condiment company as a high-end specialty food brand. Jeong Jyn Yi and Sara Roderick won a Gold Pencil for their print campaign “From Farm to Home,” and Sung Kwon Ha along with Jeong Jyn Yi, Se Hee Kim and Eunah Kim took home Silver Pencils for their entries in the Print Campaign and Corporate Identity categories, respectively. In addition to the Pencils, 14 other campaigns from SVA received merit awards.
The department also took home six awards in the student division of the 50th Annual CLIO Awards. The six winners were current student Hyojoo Kim, recent graduates Kenji Akiyama, Catherine Eccardt and Julissa Ortiz (BFA 2009 Advertising) and alumni Annie Chiu (BFA 2008 Advertising) and Anna Echiverri (BFA 2008 Advertising), who won a Gold for their campaign, which features a subway bench facing a Victoria’s Secret poster.
