From the Judges' Report
As a leading college of art and design, the school publication "RISD XYZ" hits its mark exemplifying "the many ways artists and designers both contribute to their local communities and fuel global innovation." The visually enticing and content-rich magazine is beautiful with one judge saying "I could brew a cup of tea and curl up with this magazine even though I've never even been to Rhode Island." The involvement of alumni in the magazine production is outstanding. Class notes are a feast for the eyes highlighting alumni work with a baby or two thrown in now and then. Pages pop with extraordinary contributions.
