Print is Live

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Print has featured two outstanding SVACE faculty members this week! Steven Heller, the art director, journalist, critic, author, and editor who writes The Daily Heller, interviewed John A. Parks about his new show at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel.  Parks discusses his painting influences and reflects on painting his “experience of New York, the daily plunge into crowds and raw life, the sheer scale, energy, velocity and overwhelming multifarious activity that make up the place.”

Steven Heller also talked with Steve Brodner about curating the artwork for the 150th Anniversary issue of The Nation.  Brodner sees his work as part of legacy, and he emphasizes, “It is clear that politics is a recurring drama that has to be engaged with again and again.”

Restored Reports

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Kevin Brainard, SVACE design instructor, redesigned Consumer Reports in print! His firm, Area of Practice, modernized the venerable consumer journal and revitalized its design for a new audience. Print Magazine has a great interview between Kevin and Steven Heller. Kevin describes how the new design will function, appeal to its audience, and preserve the research behind each issue.  Here are some take-aways:


“Our goal was to create a magazine that functioned on multiple levels, drawing attention to the advocacy and giving readers a reason to return for more than product reviews. We felt that the organization’s lesser-known and highly influential advocacy work would resonate with a broader and younger audience.”

“The content is what makes the publication great. We wanted to honor the painstaking research that goes into creating that content all while telling each story in the most compelling way possible.”
