Tonight, BIC was proudly represented by Natalie Alcide at AIGA’s 9th Annual Fresh Grad event. She presented her BIC team’s Bailey Ahhhhhhhlmande campaign at The New School on Thursday, June 6th, along with a select company of recently graduated peers from other illustrious local and regional graduate design-oriented programs, including Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union, NYU Tisch, SVA’s MPS in Branding, Pratt Institute, and SCAD.

Natalie presented her project as an integrated campaign that inserts the splendor of sacred downtime into the hectic daily life of the urban millennial. She was poised. Professional. Compelling. And funny. One member of the audience, BIC Program Director Nancy R. Tag, proclaimed it the best presentation of the evening.

What is Fresh Grad?
 It's a yearly event held by the American Institute of Graphic Arts
(AIGA) that offers graduate design students a chance to present their thesis and represent their school in a public forum to an enthusiastic and supportive audience.

Each graduate has 5 minutes (exactly) to present. This requires students to create tightly edited, timed keynote presentations and lots of practice, practice, practice (no sweat for Natalie)! After the presentations, all graduates take the stage for a moderated Q&A. A light reception was held afterwards.

Congrahhhhhts, Natalie. You rocked it. A real “cherry on top” of a month of amazing accomplishments — including getting your MPS in BIC!!
