Alumni After RISD XYZ

Rhode Island School of Design's new alumni magazine, RISD XYZ, just launched. The publication showcases the inspiring stories and accomplished work of RISD's alumni community. Chriswell Lappin of WellNow Design led the design, along with other contributing alumni, to give it not only a vibrant new look but also an exciting direction.

Best of all, much of the type is set in Antenna and Receiver, both designed by Cyrus Highsmith, a RISD alum himself (97 GD) and faculty member. The sans serif Antenna is the earlier design; Receiver is closely related, but with clear-cut slab serifs. His forthcoming font Ibis is also used in the "xyz" of the masthead.

On the inside back cover of the magazine you'll see our ad. Did you know that many other RISD alumni have also contributed their talents to our library over the years? - Guy Jeffrey Nelson (who designed the ad), Jesse Ragan, Dyana Weissman, Kelly Ehrgott-Milligan, Tobias Frere Jones, Elizabeth C. Holzman, Brian Lucid, Laurie Rosenwald, Denyse Schmidt.
