James Silva possesses over two decades of professional experience in graphic design with the vast majority of that within the museum & exhibit design industry. In addition to his professional experience, he holds a BFA and MA in Design and is a professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Since returning to the New York area in 2012, James Silva founded Juniper&Scribe, Ltd.: a creative entity specializing in graphic design for Cultural Institutions/Museums/Exhibits/The Built Environment, Print, Branding, Web, and Screen-based applications. Always searching for new projects, opportunities, and challenges in the areas of visual narrative, media design, graphic design, fine arts, spatial and experiential design, publication design, and the intersection of all of the above.
Nimble enough to take on smaller clients and projects, Juniper&Scribe also has a network of creative collaborators to tackle robust endeavors that require a diverse skill set - such as exhibit design, spatial planning, content development, or new media.
Prior to Juniper&Scribe, James Silva worked as a freelance environmental graphic designer, where he was part of a team that developed a traveling exhibit on the Human Genome for the Smithsonian Institution. He also worked as a senior graphic designer at Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership.
