ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY STUDENT WORK
For ten years I taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco at the Pre-College, Undergraduate, and Graduate levels. From Fall 2011 to Spring 2016, I was an MFA thesis advisor at AAU, teaching both one-on-one and group classes. Over the course of twelve terms I advised over 80 graduate students.
I am proud to say that my students have produced award-winning projects, with recognition ranging from the Academy of Art University and AIGA San Francisco, to Reddot, Clean and Green Hackathon, The Dieline, Creative Quarterly, and Linotype. They have gone on to work at places like Google, Apple, Chronicle Books, Modcloth, Old Navy, and Gap Inc.
Here are a number of their MFA thesis projects. Contact links are provided to their portfolio sites and thesis materials.
