Jordan White at University of the Arts, London


Sage College of Albany Graphic Design major Jordan White ’17 studied at London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in summer 2016, where he learned from leading London-based designers like Domenic Lippa of the international firm Pentagram, and Phil Baines, author of notable books on typography.

White also enjoyed learning traditional techniques such as letterpress printing and film processing, and access to London’s cultural attractions. “Since I love art, I spent time visiting contemporary art museums and galleries. A highlight was The Rolling Stones exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery.”

White has an associate degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and worked for Ralph Lauren, Converse and New York & Company before he decided to pursue a degree in Graphic Design at Sage, and eventually an international career in branding, advertising and marketing.

Thanks in part to the Katherine Disbrow Johnson RSC ’29 Memorial Travel Fund, which provided support for his trip, he is on his way. “I now have connections all over the world,” he said.
