Designer as Entrepreneur: Inside the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Design Program

Have you dreamed of learning from the likes of Steven Heller, Gail Anderson, Stefan Sagmeister, and Brian Collins? These design legends (and many more) are among the design star-studded faculty of the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Design program, a two-year intensive that prepares students to excel as designers and “authors” of original ideas and unique products, using a range of media and media platforms. To get the full scoop, we would ordinarily recommend that you attend an information session in New York, but the innovative types at SVA are getting the word out to design education seekers the world over with a new series of online videos. Watch Heller and Lita Talarico, the program’s co-chairs, discuss the “Designer as Entrepreneur” program, then get acquainted with the MFA Design Studio, current students, and accomplished alumni. And did we mention the part about studying typography in Venice, swapping stories with faculty member Maira Kalman, and studying “Design and Intentions” under the all-seeing eye of Milton Glaser? Applications are due by January 15 for fall enrollment. Dig into more details here.
