Thanks to the efforts of graphic designer Andrew LeClair [RISD MFA, 2012], and faculty members Emanuel Admassu, Laura Briggs, Aaron Forrest and Carl Lostritto, RISD Architecture has a new visual identity. Inspired by the diversity of approaches and schools of thought within our department, rather than produce a logo, LeClair designed a mark-making tool. Now we have the potential to have as many RISD Architecture marks, as there are unique individuals and perspectives within the department. Stay tuned as we roll out marks by notable architects and educators from our lecture series, as well as renowned RISD Architecture Alumni.
