MFA Design Department Co-chair Lita Talarico was the MC of this year’s Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) ceremony, which was held in Taipei, Taiwan in collaboration with the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA). Of the more than 4,600 entries received, only 42 finalists were chosen for the ADAA, which honor the most talented student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers, and computer artists from higher education institutions worldwide who have created projects using Adobe software.
Another member of the SVA community, MFA Interaction Design Department Chair Liz Danzico, served as a judge for the ADAA competition. “Over the years, the tools themselves have become so sophisticated that the students are able to realize their ideas in a much more sophisticated way than ever before,” said Danzico. “This competition showcases those great ideas that are expressed with a high level of technical ability.”
