Unique book design by studio Hinterland for The School of Visual Arts, a multidisciplinary college of art and design.

Hinterland is a New York based design studio specializing in branding for print, digital and physical environments, and publication design for books and magazines. They have recently conceived and designed a book for The School of Visual Arts, a multidisciplinary college of art and design known for its unparalleled faculty and innovative curriculum.

“The School of Visual Arts’ Senior Library is a longstanding tradition, a remarkable portrait of the Design and Advertising students at SVA as they are just about to embark on their careers. The Library conceptually expands on the Choose Your Own Adventure children’s book series and the reader is given multiple ways to navigate the book. The jacket doubles as a poster with a visual index of the students on one side and an alphabetical index on the other. If you prefer to just flip through the pages, information in the gutter will lead you to additional work from that student. By design, there is no true beginning, middle or end. The experience is nonlinear – just like a designer’s education, design-thinking, career, and life after graduation.”
