On Monday, April 13th, the New England School of Art and Design (NESAD) annual senior show will take place in the main gallery at 73 Tremont street. Titled “Just My Type”, the final show for the upcoming graduates features a variety of highlights, and the unique talent of each student’s work and the ideas that have influenced each individual’s design aesthetic.
Our first NESAD wide pop up show took place on Wednesday, Feb 25th through Friday, Feb 27th.
NESAD students of any major were encouraged to hang work on a first come, first serve basis. Submissions were limited to 5 pieces per student and many students from all programs participated.
For more information, please go to the front desk or email gallery assistant, Elle DioGuardi, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you enjoyed the show and we look forward to many more NESAD pop up shows in the future.
Impromptustudio, a student driven design shop founded in NESAD, was approached by Bacco’s Fine Foods to create an ad campaign for their wine and cheese store in Boston.
Based on the client’s business card, the only existing visual identity piece that client had, Impromptustudio built a brand strategy to inform the conceptual approach for the ad campaign.
Bacco’s picked 7 of the 11 options presented, and purchased 13 insertions at The Improper Bostonian, bi-weekly magazine with a 100 000 circulation to run until Spring 2014.
October 2014, Bacco’s Ad Campaign won an advertising competition at GRAPHIS, a very prestigious international design publication. It was selected among many impressive entries by established agencies from all over the world.
