Nice Cubes

BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department

In May 2012, SVA won the Art Directors Club (ADC) coveted School of the Year award for a third year in a row, with SVA students in the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department receiving a grand total of nine ADC Cubes. Organized as a showcase of the winning work, the 91st Annual Awards Exhibition was on view at the ADC Gallery in New York from May 9 – 31 before embarking on a national tour.

As the roster of winners lit up industry publications like AdWeek and Creativity, the SVA blog Close Up provided some details:

The Cubes were for outstanding work in the Ambient/Environmental, Collateral, Press, Illustration and Motion categories, and represented a range of clients, from the American Red Cross to the MINI Cooper. SVA students also earned merit awards in the Illustration, Motion and Press 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 organization that serves as a hub for creative talent and leadership in visual communication.

The ADC Awards competition is judged by an international panel of some of the 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.
