Sally Thurer

Adjunct Assistant Professor


Sally Thurer is an independent art director, graphic designer, illustrator and animator in Brooklyn. She received her MFA from The Yale School of Art and is the former co-founder and creative director of Missbehave Magazine. For more than a decade, Sally has been doing design and illustration work for clients like Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Times and Nike. She is the only employee ever to hold the title “Head of Experiential Methodology and Critical Theory” at MTV. Sally is best-known on Instagram for an account called Bootlegwiki which functions as a casual research project and an informal platform for discourse on appropriation, and piracy. Like everyone else, her work has been knocked-off and sold at Urban Outfitters but she’s totally cool with it.
