HONG KONG —May 7, 2019 — Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Hong Kong is honored to announce the launch of Business Beyond Design, a book by Gianluca Cinquepalmi, Associate Chair of Communication Arts and Professor of Advertising and Graphic Design.

It reached #1 best seller in the Nonprofit Management & Leadership, also ranked #1 in the Advertising category (new release) and #4 in the Education Problem Solving category.
