SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS

Robert Barrese is in his last year, studying design at SVA. He is a strategic thinker, driver of big ideas, and a visonary creative. His best work is done while listening to good music and drinking a cheap cup of coffee. Robert loves a challenge and pushes his designs forward with ambition, curiosity, and a drive to be the best it can be. Works focusing on functionality, systematic visual identities, and the over arching process of design. Robert continues to experiment with silk screening, creating his own typography, testing a users experience and developing design with purpose over aesthetics. He is excited for what is to come as he pursues his degree and looks forward in making his mark.
