MY DOG AND PONY: FRESH BLOOD IV

Pecha Kucha-style, students from MICA, NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program, Parsons Design + Technology, Pratt Comm-D, RISD, SVA’s Design, Branding, Design Criticism and Interaction Design MFA programs, Cranbrook and Yale will gather at the SVA theater and take five minutes to dazzle the audience and each other with wonders from their graduate projects.
Come to support and prepare to leave impressed and inspired. Rachel Abrams of Turnstone Consulting and Ian Spalter of Foursquare will co-host. This year, like the last three, it’s a date on the AIGA/NY calendar not to be missed!
