The MFA Design Department at the School of Visual Arts, also known as Designer as Author + Entrepreneur, presents Thesis Forum 2012, “Designer As _____,” a showcase of proposals for products, campaigns, apps, and more, reflecting the multitude of roles that designers play in order to offer entrepreneurial solutions for today’s complex social and commercial marketplace. The Thesis Forum takes place on Wednesday, April 18 from 12:30 pm – 7:30 pm at the SVA Theatre, located at 333 West 23 Street. It is a free event targeted to designers, editors and hiring managers.
The annual Thesis Forum and Thesis Launch are platforms for MFA candidates to introduce their wares to the public and receive feedback. Each graduating student presents a conceptual pitch and promotional video as a well-crafted narrative that highlights the reasons for, and consequences of, the project. This is a launching pad for innovation and inspiration, as well as creative and business development.
