Craig Lowy

Craig Lowy

Graphic Designer. Theater Director. Not especially good ukulele player. Craig Lowy is a designer/director whose work has won awards for everyone from Fortune 500 Companies to Not-For-Profit Organizations. He has designed opening titles for TV stations including The Sundance Channel, The History Channel and PBS. Most recently he designed titles and animations for the Emmy award winning documentary “Split Estate.” Though born in Los Angeles Craig was raised in the bland suburbs of Connecticut and New Jersey until his high school years in Philadelphia. As an undergraduate Craig studied Art History at Vassar, painting and video at SVA [the first time around], acting and directing at Circle in the Square, and finally graduated from Empire College with a BA in Motion Graphics. He has also apprenticed with a Shadow Puppet Master in Bali. In addition to immersing himself in the SVA SocDoc Program, Craig is also a full time visiting professor teaching Motion Graphics and Animation at Mercy College and he still tries to run his design firm. When asked who inspires him Craig’s rather long list included Buster Keaton and Vasily Kandinsky, the video artists Shirin Neshat and Christian Marclay, and the cartoonist Charles Addams happily married fictional couple Morticia and Gomez.
