We designed a wide range of exhibitions, campaigns, and initiatives in support of this figurative art graduate school in Tribeca that Andy Warhol, Tom Wolfe, and other luminaries founded. We refined the Academy’s academic materials, its branding standards, modernized its website and created graphic identities, posters, and signage for over 20 events and exhibitions.
Take Home a Nude®
We designed the identity for “Take Home a Nude,” an annual fundraiser hosted by Sotheby's. Hugo Guinness' handwriting inspired the identity, which was used on all printed and digital materials, and was also incorporated into exhibition graphics.
The Academy holds an exhibition at a local, Chelsea gallery every summer. Each year, we designed the exhibition catalog, street-facing graphics, posters, postcards, and social media promotions.
Invitation and catalog
The Academy produces a book for each graduating class at the end of the year. We designed the book, along with materials for the MFA Thesis exhibitions, such as street-facing graphics, an exhibition guide, wayfinding, and mailable postcards (below).
MFA Open Studios
This event is regularly held in the Spring semester. We branded the event, art directed the photography and designed the promotional materials, wayfinding, and exhibition guides.
