New Talent: Academy of Art University’s Yuya Yoshida and Krishnapriya Dutta Gupta

Newcomers from The Academy of Art University presents some of their very best work in this week’s spotlight on up-and-coming talent.

Showcasing student work has always been a mainstay of Graphis. After all, its the new talent that will inevitably usurp the crowned champions of this industry, moving graphic design to new heights that their predecessors would have seldom imagined. In that vein, Graphis is honored to present the very best of the upcoming talents that are making waves in the design community. Professor Thomas McNulty has helped student Yuya Yoshida create a baroque packaging design for fictional bourbon company, Backhouse Bourbon (ABOVE). The fun and opulent typography coupled with its clear Wild West marketing philosophy has made it a bonafide platinum-winning entry.

Also featured in this week’s new entry spotlight is professor Hunter Wimmer and student Krishnapriya Dutta Gupta‘s project Rebranding: Ideal Toy Company (ABOVE). The playful design and sleek, simplistic approach makes it an inviting and timeless way of reinvigorating a now defunct toy company. With its sharply facile typography and primary color aesthetic, Wimmer and Gupta‘s project is but one of the many examples of the newcomers that are poised to reimagine the design world.
Be sure to submit your work to Graphis’ Annual New Talent Competition before the looming October 9 deadline! Winners will have the opportunity to see their work published on our website, blog, newsletter, and social media platforms.
