The Visual Arts Press is the design studio for the School of Visual Arts. The press produces the College's printed publications, websites, environmental graphics and promotional products. It maintains a unified identity for SVA while communicating the College's diverse messages. The press also produces many publications that highlight student work.
SVA and its students gain international media exposure from the hundreds of awards that the Visual Arts Press has won in recent years—see the list below.
Some of our most visible and highly regarded creations throughout the past 50 years are the SVA New York City subway posters. These posters have become a hallmark of great design in the New York landscape and have brought SVA international acclaim. See the list of designers and artists who've worked on these posters below.
The press offers design internships each year. Student interns are selected based on qualifications, portfolio review and schedule. Please contact us for more information.
