SVA Interior Design Faculty Join NYCxDESIGN’s ‘Ode To NYC’ Poster Campaign

Jack Travis’ poster, We Keep From Goin’ Under, a reference to a lyric by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, the seminal South Bronx hip-hop group. “It was important to me to celebrate an iconic message expressing the love for my beloved city, created by one of the most beloved NYC designers, with another iconic message from my most beloved borough,” Travis says. “You cannot stop NYC. Love you, NYC, Miss you, Milton Glaser!”

 

NYCxDESIGN’s “Ode to NYC” posters are available for sale on Poster House’s website, with proceeds going to the Black Artists + Designers Guild (BADG), a nonprofit aimed at creating a more inclusive and equitable art and design world.

 

“The local designers we tapped have created poignant, inspiring posters that illustrate the resiliency, strength and rebirth of our beloved city,” says Valerie Hoffman, program director, NYCxDESIGN.

“As a collective of independent Black artists, makers and designers striving towards creating inclusive art and design environment through equity and representation, we are gratified and excited to be a part of this wonderful initiative, put forth by the efforts of so many talented New York-based creatives,” Malene Barnett, founder of BADG, says.

The Cambridge family join Sir David Attenborough for garden screening of A Life On Our Planet

From Good Housekeeping

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, met up with Sir David Attenborough last week, as they all attended a very special outdoor screening.

The Cambridges and Sir David met up in the gardens of Kensington Palace to watch the environmentalist’s upcoming feature film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.

Alongside lovely photos taken at the outdoor event, the official @KensingtonPalace Instagram caption posted in the caption: “With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, they continue to support one another in their missions to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces.

“This includes working together on The @EarthshotPrize, the most prestigious global environment prize in history – further details of which will be shared in the coming weeks.”

The caption also revealed some lovely details about the meet-up, including the fact that Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark, called a carcharocles megalodon or “big tooth”.

“Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago,” the caption explains. “Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.”

We’re sure that Prince George loved looking at the tooth, as his happy smile in the second photo shared in the Instagram post proves!

The whole of the Cambridge clan, and Sir David for that matter, were wearing smart outfits in coordinating shades of blue for the occasion, with the TV veteran in a navy suit, Princes William and Louis in blue jumpers, George in a blue checked shirt, and Charlotte in cute blue shoes.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning as usual, in a light blue denim shirt dress, which appears to be the Marley Belted style by designer brand Gabriella Hearst.

N.J.’s top RB Audric Estime picks Michigan State | 3rd Garden State player to join Spartans’ 2021 class

New Jersey’s top running back Audric Estime is a Michigan State Spartan after committing to Mel Tucker this weekend. A 6-1, 225-pound pound senior at St. Joseph Regional (Montvale, N.J.), Estime has received over 25 offers, and is a big bruising throwback runner with burst. Although in-state Rutgers had built-in recruiting advantages, Estime will take his talents to East Lansing following a summer trek to the school.

“A lot of time went into this decision. I had a lot to think about. Me, my family, my coaches and friends,” Estime told NJ Advance Media Sunday. “After all that, we thought that Michigan State would put me in the best position to fulfill my dreams and goals. And they had the best academic program, too.”

Estime has long been rumored a Michigan State lean, but when did he actually know he’d pick the school?

“I think I knew a couple days ago, I want to say about Tuesday,” Estime said. “I just woke up and was like, ‘Yeah, I’m ready. I want to be my own man. I’m locked in. I’m going to make it happen.’”

Rutgers was initially branded the team to beat with former head coach Augie Hoffmann now coaching running backs at the school. But Estime’s been on the Spartans’ trajectory since an unofficial visit to East Lansing in July, where he was joined by teammate and fellow four-star Geno VanDeMark.

The players weren’t hosted by coaches (due to the recruiting dead period), but were provided an itinerary which included specific stops they were to make while calling certain coaches at predetermined times to interact virtually. I like to call them Coronavirus age unofficial visits, which circumvent restrictions put in place to keep recruits off campus, but don’t technically break any rules.

“Honestly, that visit my eyes opened up even more,” Estime said. “I said to myself I could see myself playing in this stadium and living in this town. That’s when things started to heat up a little bit.”

But that didn’t make breaking the news to his former head coach any less hard.

“It was super-hard telling (Hoffmann) I won’t be teaming up with him again,” Estime said. “I don’t like to break the hearts of people I love. So it was hard for me and it was definitely hard for him.”

Hence, Hoffmann will likely continue to have a relationship with Estime despite his choice. But Rutgers wasn’t the only school Estime had trouble saying no to.

“So was the University of Iowa,” he said.

But, is the door to his recruitment 100 percent closed?

“I’ll still talk to some schools here and there,” he said. “But, as of right now, I’m locked in (with Michigan State) 100 percent,” he said.

And it all began with a visit.

“The week after that when I was talking with my family about it, I would say
