Advertising Design ’99

Edward Ubiera designs the marketing materials, such as hangtags and labels, for Aéropostale. He also creates a small piece of art, using simple shapes in a neutral color palette, every day and posts it on Instagram. Last summer, he was invited by Mike Perry, known for drawing the animated opening credits of the TV show Broad City, to paint one of ten murals in Prospect Heights for a street festival.
