Sneha Suresh is a 4th year student at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology. She has been working on a printmaking project which is based on the vernacular. Being a Tamilian, born and brought up in Goa she has worked on a project called ‘Inaipu’ (which means fusion in Tamil) as a part of my pre-thesis project.
“The intent of this project is to present the metamorphosis of the oral tradition of Tamil proverbs and represent them visually by looking at the evolution of Tamil letterforms in a more imaginative way. My role in this project is based on the amalgamation of the oral tradition and visual culture, metaphors, material culture and symbols of Tamil Nadu. I’ve tried to bring out the real and the imagined mentioned in the oral tradition of proverbs through visuals which means, looking at how an intangible expression can manifest into a tangible one. I never managed to get myself to learn how to read and write Tamil which I regret but now, as a visual artist and a visual communication design student I am interested in letterforms and this project has been a pathway for me to get close to my cultural roots. Here are a few links that you could refer to if interested.”
Advert title: Bad [W]rap Campaign name: Bad [W]rap Agency: Miami Ad School, Miami, USA Brand: GlobalPartners Art Director: Yann Loussouarn Copywriter: Yessenia Downs
Short description: In a time when hatred outweighs unity, how do you strip the headwrap of its bad rap?
Twitter has served as a platform for those who oppose muslims, as well as those who support them, so PartnersGlobal decided to stop the hate speech by injecting themselves at the heart of it, in hopes of moving the conversation from hate to encouragement.
We created a video of muslim women showing that, under their headwraps, they are just people. Anytime someone tweets the hashtags #WrapGrab, #MuslimBan, #LoveBeforeFlags or #antimuslim, they will be given the option to include this video with their tweet. Those who are pro-muslim will be given another tool to spread their message of love and tolerance. Those who are anti-muslim will be able to put names and faces to the people who they vilify and see that under their headwraps these women are no different from their mothers, daughters, sisters and wives.

Synopsis: A typical person’s foot strikes the ground approximately 1,600 times when walking or running a mile. Each foot strike requires a cushioning system to compress and rebound but, after about 200 miles the cushioning system in most shoes has started to lose its resiliency and the body begins to absorb more of the impact. So, Nike created Stridekick, a product that will let you know, “hey, it is time for new shoes.”
Brought to you by two Irish bartenders who are also ad students.
This Guinness spec was made by Miami Ad School students Tadhg Ennis and Brendan Irving. While both working as bartenders to pay for their tuitions, they came up with the idea to make a branded content piece that talks about the correlation between the bartender and a pint of Guinness.
Just like Guinness, the bartender is more than meets the eye. They are a group of philosophers, comedians, artists, and rogues. A distinct group that is complex on many levels. We take time growing into our skin, but once we do we are full of character and unapologetically authentic.
This work, comes from the bottom of our hearts to the bottom of your glass.
The Perfect Guinness Ad for the Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Brought to you by two Irish bartenders—who happen to be advertising students
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Miami Ad School students from the New York campus Tadhg Ennis and Brendan Irving have released a brand-new Guinness spec. While both working as bartenders to pay their tuition, they came up with the idea to make a branded content piece that celebrates the correlation between the bartender and a pint of Guinness.
The two teamed up with producer and fellow Irishman Brian O’ Carroll (Blue Caprice) and director Nicholas Gray (The Paper Store) to fully realize the one-minute spot.
Just like Guinness, the bartender is more than meets the eye. He—or she— belongs to a tribe of philosophers, comedians, artists, and rogues. A distinct group that is complex on many levels—also like Guinness. They may take time growing into their skin, but once they do, they’re full of character and unapologetically authentic… much like a certain dry stout.
