New Talent: Savannah College of Art and Design Provides New Inspiration

The Georgia-based design school presents new and tantalizing work

Graphis is honored to showcase the work of these esteemed Savannah College of Art and Design students. From a imaginative and colorful magazine to a redesign of a fictitious airline, these professors and their students have demonstrated a wondrous work ethic and a earnest eye for the new.
Professor Elizabeth Mandel and student George Prah have created a elegiac work that speaks to the level of excellence that the school represents. Their work to create La Sape Magazine (ABOVE) is both bold and understated, making use of vibrant colors to emphasize the beauty and boldness of the art itself. The silver award-winning campaign has an alluring approach, one that utilizes mid-20th century French fashion adages to propagate ideals of “a new generation of men that defy their circumstances and live ‘Joie De Vivre’ (The Joy of Life) while upholding personal style and creative thinking.”
Professor Jorge Montero and student Lisa Fischer showcase an equally superb campaign for a fabricated airline. The airline’s name, Oro (ABOVE), means “gold” in Spanish, which is the aesthetic that the designers utilized in their color scheme. Furthermore, as the designers explain, “Oro’s visual identity is influenced by the geometric Mudéjar art and architecture throughout Seville.”
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.
