Last week my alma mater, SCAD, hosted their annual #SCADstyle events. Here in Savannah the school hosted talks with industry professionals for students to learn more open up the conversation on how to succeed in their growing field of study. This is one of my favorite things about SCAD. As as student you are exposed to so many diverse and influential learning opportunities. Opportunities you wouldn't be able to receive anywhere else. Even if it isn't in your field of study, I always think SCAD hosts some of the best events for their students. Whether it's watching behind the scenes FX work on Jurassic World from a SCAD alumni, seeing Stefan Sagmeister present his newest book (then having him sign my copy, ah!) or attending the Film Festival. Each event makes me feel like a little kid at Christmas. It's because SCAD goes BIG. The attention to detail shines in each and every aspect of the event, talk or movie screening.
This is why I LOVE working with the fabulous ladies over at SCAD events. They pull together the most mindblowingly beautiful events and make it look so effortless. I normally only see the finished product, but this was my second time doing menu calligraphy for them and all I have to say is 'Bless!' I would not be able to do what they do. Last minute changes alone are stress city. Huge props to them for flawlessly creating such wonderful experiences for SCAD's students, faculty and guests.
Check out the photos below from their latest Presidential dinner hosting Mr. Calvin Klein himself.
The gold silverware! The textured black plates! The glassware, oh my! (Insert heart eyes emoji here)
The dinner was located at the Pei Ling Chan Gallery in downtown Savannah, which used to be a bank. It was such a beautiful space. Those tall windows on the left lined the entire wall. Marv Graff, a SCAD grad who got his MFA in Fibers, was being honored as well! His work was displayed along all the walls and decorated the table.
It was a delight to work with SCAD events again and I hope you enjoyed what the final product looked like with the rest of the venue! I loved seeing all the details come together. I'll be working with these ladies again tomorrow morning at the Sidewalk Arts Festival in Forsyth Park if you're in the area! I'll keep you posted on what we come up with!
As always, thanks for reading & stay beautiful.
