NYU Stern Sophomore Cohort Creativity Challenge Poster Alternative Colorways

NYU Stern Sophomore Cohort Creativity Challenge identity

NYU’s Stern School of Business commissioned us to create an identity for their new experience, the Sophomore Cohort Creativity Challenge, a series of events that are geared towards creating camaraderie among Stern sophomore students, while working towards positive goals in the local community.

Carnival Poster “Rescue”

Some people hoard animals in need of a good home; I hoard posters. While my friends (link 1 and link 2) were in town, we headed over to Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles, where a street fair augmented the already-festive atmosphere of the oldest part of LA.

According to Wikipedia, Mr. Reisinger won first prize for this poster design for […]

Devin’s Debut

We were inspired by the gritty-yet-soft shading techniques used by advertising poster artists such as Adolphe Mouron Cassandre in the earlier half of the 20th century. After […]
