Cheryl Savala

I'm still a big kid at heart with an office and home consumed with Star Wars, Nightmare Before Christmas and Maleficent toys, but with over 20 years of entertainment marketing and design experience, I've also had the pleasure to direct the creative for several of some incredible home entertainment campaigns including The Star Wars Saga, Titanic, X-Men, Planet of the Apes and the United Artist 90 Anniversary celebration. Cal State Fullerton is my alma mater where both a BFA and MA in Design and Illustration were earned. Each semester I return to CSUF to mentor a new group of seniors in an upper division course specializing in entertainment design. Yoda, whom I am sometimes referred to, is proud to say that nearly 30 of these young apprentices have been recognized by the Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards in the Annual Student Key Art Award Competition.
