Spagnola/Art Guild Collaboration Featured in SEGD Magazine

by | Oct 4, 2017

The Stevens Institute of Technology (Stevens) – on the Hudson River across from New York – was the first university in the United States dedicated to mechanical engineering. It has been in the midst of a turnaround that is helping make it one of the most desirable STEM colleges in the nation. Part of that turnaround includes renovation of existing buildings supported by consistent and attractive graphic design and messaging that reflects this unique technology focused institution.

So where does Art Guild fit in? Spagnola & Associates, a long-time design partner of ours, is an integral part of the Stevens re-design efforts, with Art Guild serving the role of fabricator on a number of campus projects. Our collaboration with Spagnola includes fabrication and installation of graphics, display cases, video displays and more in key buildings across the campus such as the Ruesterholz Admissions Center, the Schaefer Center Gymnasium and the America’s Cup, one of Stevens’ three coffee shops (all shown in the photos). And Art Guild is actively working with Spagnola on a number of additional Stevens projects.

Spagnola’s (and our work) at Stevens was just featured in SEGD magazine – a prestigious publication from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design. In the article, Tony Spagnola notes the importance of collaborative relationships and working with people who really understand Spagnola & Associates’ way of working, like Christensen Lighting and Art Guild. Spagnola adds, “In addition to their excellent craftsmanship, the work is mutually beneficial; they make us look good and vice-versa.”

We agree.
