The Visual Arts Press, the in-house design studio for SVA, recently won several awards for various promotional materials created for the College. The kudos came via Graphis: The International Journal of Visual Communication, which publishes annual collections of outstanding design work from studios around the world.
With five Gold Awards in the Graphis Design Annual 2010, the Press earned a spot alongside Apple and the international design studio Pentagram in the Graphis Top 2010, a list of 10 studios whose work won the most awards. The five winning projects were: issue #3 of Dear Dave, magazine, a tri-annual publication by the BFA Photography Department; a subway poster designed by faculty member Mirko Ilic; the portfolio from the BFA Photography Department’s class of 2007; the 2009 – 2010 undergraduate catalog; and Thunderstruck, the cartooning portfolio from the BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department.
In separate Graphis competitions, the Press also won a Gold Award for a poster it created for Where the Truth Lies: A Symposium on Propaganda Today, and a Silver Award for SVA’s 2008 annual report.
