What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Steve BrodnerViktor Koen, and Grant Shaffer.

Steve Brodner for the Village Voice

For the current Village Voice cover, Steve Brodner brings together concept and composition in an illustration that demonstrates the disturbing and absurd qualities of Donald Trump’s dominance of the 2016 election primaries. See Brodner’s Trump illustration for The Nation for an extra serving of Trump scrutiny.

Graphis Typography 3 features Viktor Koen’s “Artphabet” from “The ABCs of SVA” subway posters. “The tome presents work by some of the top international design and type design masters in the industry,” according to Graphis. Viktor is a prolific illustrator who deserves a print record of his work, which already thrives in digital formats.
