Joe Staluppi is the Advertising Design Curriculum Co-Chair at FIT where he has updated the curriculum so that it prepares the students for creative excellence in the digital age. The new Advertising & Digital Design program teaches students to succeed in the new creative partnership, in which art director, copywriter, and experience designer work together to communicate messages that make people react, respond, join in and do something. 

In the last three years, the students in his courses have won two Young Ones Gold Pencils, one Silver Pencil, and two Bronze Pencils. The One Club of Creativity ranked the FIT Advertising & Digital Design BFA Program 4th in the country for One Show Young One awards in 2020. 

Before teaching at FIT, Joe had done many brand-building campaigns for clients such as Crest, Norelco, Pampers, Black & Decker, Mass Mutual, New Jersey Tourism, and New Jersey Lottery while working at Y&R, DMB&B, Bozell, McCann, and Brushfire.  Those campaigns won over 50 creative awards including The One Show, The Clio, The ANDY, The ADDY, and The International Advertising Festival of NY Gold Medal, Communication Arts  Advertising Annual, and Adweek’s Best Spots.
