When it’s right, it’s right, and this card is full of 90° angles. The square Guild logo is like a wax seal on business reply mail—odd but definitely intriguing.

Project Description

RISD Design Guild is student run graphic design studio at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island whose projects have taken the form of books, videos, posters, and identities. These business cards were a means of publicity around campus and in the community.

Production Lesson(s)

As the members of the RISD Design Guild change yearly, this card needed to take a neutral voice that could represent both the current team and future Guild designers. In keeping with a slick color palette and plenty of white space, the Design Guild's new card will be a great promotional piece for years to come.”
