New York Study Trip: Day 4

Great feedback is coming in from yesterday’s visits with real interest being shown in the students work with good opportunities to follow up in the near future including the children’s fiction group meeting with Marc Drumwright from Enchanted Lion. He was kind enough to spend 4 hours with students and gave everyone great feedback. 

An added bonus was a meeting at The Invisble Dog Art Center with Oliver Jeffers for Catherine, Jo, Leah, Hannah and Millie. Below are some photos from the day’s visits and also one of the building in the East Village that was photographed for the cover of Led Zeppelin’s iconic ‘Physical Graffiti’ album. Sue and I just stumbled on it when wandering past.

Todays visits include; Henry Holt Books (a young audience imprint of MacMillan Books), Nautilus, Little Brown Books, Pearlfisher Design, Sterling Books, Farrar Straus Giroux and Bullet Proof.

More updates to follow….


Day One NY 2016

Driving into Manhattan is still as exciting as ever though with huge skyscrapers eventually blocking out the night sky as we approached our destination. After arriving  at the YMCA pretty late (10pm local time, 3am UK time!) most of chose to get some sleep straight away.

Day one involves upto 5 visits. 11am sees students visiting Hard Hat Design. Hardhat is a boutique, award winning, multi-disciplinary creative agency based in Brooklyn. At 3pm students visit Patrick Crotty from PEOW. PEOW is a studio that specialise in comic book publishing and Risograph printing.At 3pm a group of students will visit Chase Design Group. Chase Design Group is a creative agency with offices in California and New York. Then at 5.30pm students visit Vault 49, an award winning New York agency who create branding, advertising, design and art. Its also hoped that some students will be able to visit Nobrow’s NY office subject to confirmation. Good luck to everyone. We hopefully will be able to share images of the visits as and when they come in…
