Hablas Diseno?: SVA to Offer Courses in Spanish

espanol.jpgAll those years of French classes may have enabled us to eavesdrop on inter-object conversations as imagined by Konstantin Grcic and to focus on the stunning visuals (as opposed to the English sous-titres) of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, but they won’t get us very far in a new series of design courses taught by such designers as Rafael Esquer and Jose Luis Ortiz Tellez at New York’s School of Visual Arts (SVA). Pourquoi? Because they’re part of the new SVA program taught entirely in Spanish, the school’s first initiative to provide advertising and design instruction in a second language. Geared toward both practicing and aspiring designers, the courses focus on everything from Color and Copywriting to Editorial Design and Branding. Among the faculty are Gabriela Mirensky (director of competitions and exhibitions at AIGA), Jessica Perilla (Jessica Perilla Design), and Carlos Pion (Concrete Brand Imaging). Registration is now open, so andate rapido!
