“Take it On” Posters for the School of Visual Arts by Sagmeister & Walsh

“Take it On” Poster Series for the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City.

Design firm Sagmeister & Walsh has a special relationship to the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City. Stefan Sagmeister teaches at the MFA Design department, Jessica Walsh teaches at the BFA Design department, and Santiago Carrasquilla has studied at the BFA Design department. This bond to the SVA community resulted in the production of a poster series. Stefan Sagmeister, Jessica Walsh, and Santiago Carrasquilla embraced the maxim by literally taking on the typography on their faces. The posters were created in cooperation with photographer Henry Leutwyler and creative retoucher Erik Johansson.

  1. These two have been using their faces (or body parts) in their work lately, quite the bold move. But I also think they are using that “celebrity status” too much, selling their fame rather than good concepts.
