Design for a Seattle Institution

School of Visual Concepts

Interior design, finishes, and furniture for a design institution.

The School of Visual Concepts (SVC) dates back to the days before Photoshop, the Internet, and iPads: 1971, to be exact. That year, two gifted and highly successful illustrators, Dick and Cherry Brown, decided to open an art school where working professionals would do the teaching. More than 40 years later, their underlying philosophy is still quite intact. Today, SVC continues to believe that the people best qualified to teach you about your craft are the ones already practicing it at a very high level. Board & Vellum helped update the school with a layout for their new and expanded campus, as well as interior design services for finish and furniture selection.
