For the third consecutive year, SVA has won the Art Directors Club honor of “School of the Year.” SVA students in the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department received nine ADC Cubes to claim the top cumulative award honors, which is based on total points for the year’s winning work across categories. The cubes were for outstanding work in the Ambient/Environmental, Collateral, Print, Illustration and Motion Graphics categories, and represented a range of clients, from the American Red Cross to the MINI Cooper. This year Motion Graphics dominated the awards with five cubes. SVA students also earned merit awards in the Illustration, Motion and Print categories, including a campaign for the Coalition to End Violence Against Women.
The Art Directors Club is the premier organization for integrated media worldwide. Founded in New York in 1920, the ADC is a self-funded, not-for-profit, global membership organization which serves as a hub for creative talent and leadership in visual communication.
The ADC Awards competition is judged by an international panel of the world’s most respected creative professionals to recognize the best work from around the world in interactive media, broadcast and print advertising, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration. The winners were presented with the ADC’s coveted Gold, Silver and Bronze Cubes at a gala ceremony in New York City on May 9, and will be featured in the award-winning Art Directors Annual, the oldest and most respected compendium of outstanding work in the industry. Winning work will also be archived online at ADC’s website later this year.
The 91st Annual Awards Exhibition runs through May 31 at the ADC Gallery, 106 West 29th Street, New York City, before embarking on a national tour. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 10am – 6pm and admission is free and open to the public.
