Master in Visual Brand Design Students work on a crowdfunding campaign
The students of the Master in Visual Brand Design have the chance to participate to the SO_Sarpi “creative ride”. Guided by Francesco Poroli, they will design visual representations in order to communicate the project “Ride with a mission” and the link between communities.
The cultural Association SO_Sarpi, born in Milan’s Chinatown district took part in the crowdfunding campaign “Ride with a mission” creating an additional chapter SO_Ride with a mission, a “creative ride” consisting of: events, workshops and talks.
After a project presentation by Cecilia Melli – SO_Sarpi Art Director and the illustrator Francesco Poroli, students began to design posters on the themes of #senegal, #water and #artandhabits.
