New SVA Website Highlights Visual and Social Media Content

March 8, 2012

SVA launched a redesigned website on March 7, with a dynamic and visually rich online presence that aggregates media feeds of various types—social, video, image, text—to reflect the breadth of the SVA community and bring its collective artistic output to the forefront. “From the homepage to every other page on the site, we’re showing off the best work made by our students, faculty and alumni—their words, images, blogs, tweets and more,” says SVA Executive Vice President Anthony P. Rhodes.

The website’s redesign was led by SVA Director of Design and Digital Media Michael Walsh and implemented by the New York-based interactive agency Funny Garbage. SVA’s new site provides an easy-to-navigate framework for finding information and discovering new content and its homepage is curated daily, reflecting SVA’s ever-growing pool of talent in the fine arts, design, advertising, film and photography communities. The rich visual content also enables users to tap into SVA’s exhibitions and public programming, which appeal to the New York arts community at large.

In addition, SVA’s Briefs blog has been redesigned and renamed as the blog you are currently reading, SVA Close Up, and the College now has an official presence on Tumblr, too.
