A coffee cup for a lampshade, a billboard suspended in mid-air and a creatively stained napkin-these are just a few of the ad campaigns made by SVA students featured in the Graphis New Talent Annual 2010, an international collection of the best student work in the fields of advertising, design and photography. With more award-winning submissions than any other school, SVA was named the Platinum Winner in the School category in the Annual. Six recent graduates and one current student from the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department created six of the nine Platinum winning projects. The winners are Ian Bae (BFA 2009 Advertising); Eunhaee “Cindy” Cho, current student in the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department; Jonathan Han (BFA 2009 Graphic Design); Brian McLaughlin (BFA 2009 Advertising); Eun Joung Park (BFA 2009 Graphic Design); Sara Roderick (BFA 2009 Advertising); and Jeong Jyn Yi (BFA 2009 Advertising). In addition to the Platinum winners, 86 students from the Department won Gold Awards. More work by students and alumni from the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department can be viewed on the Department Web site.
The New Talent Annual 2010 also designates winning instructors based on the number of winning projects submitted by their students. Of the seven slots, SVA claimed six: faculty members Frank Anselmo, Christopher Austopchuk, Louisse Fili, Michael Ian Kaye, Jack Mariucci and Timothy Samara. The Annual featured front-of-book interviews with faculty members Sal DeVito and Jack Mariucci. Mariucci, whose students created 32 of the winning projects, spoke about his students and how teaching them affects his own work: “This may sounds like a cliche, but teaching has enabled me to think younger. Being around young minds tends to bring out the kid in you.”
