SCAD-Atlanta alumnae lands job at Vanity Fair
ATLANTA –Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta alumnae Feifei Sun was recently named editorial assistant at Vanity Fair Magazine. Sun graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree in advertising design winter quarter of 2008.
Sun was the editor-in-chief of the SCAD-Savannah student newspaper, The District, from 2006-2007. During her time as editor-in-chief, The District won numerous awards including top honors from the Associated Collegiate Press, Society for Collegiate Journalists and the Southern Regional Press Institute.
Jessica Clary, adviser to the District, said that Sun was always looking for ways to improve the paper. “She challenged herself and her staff to improve all aspects of the content: design, layout, photography—everything,” Clary said.
In addition to her experiences at The District, Sun was also president of the Georgia College Press Association and freelanced for The Savannah Morning News and The South Magazine.
Sun reflected on her time spent at SCAD and attributes her success, in part, to the experience she gained with Student Media. “I can say without a doubt that I wouldn’t have my job at Vanity Fair had I not joined Student Media,” she said. “I cannot stress enough that Student Media gave me real, everyday experience with writing, editing and working with others.”
Before working at Vanity Fair, Sun was Scenes editor at The South Magazine. Sun said, “As for future plans, I hope to work my way up the magazine industry and eventually work as an editor.”
