With a thematic focus in each issue, RISD’s art and design magazine is designed to keep readers inspired and informed about the people, projects and passions that make our creative community so extraordinary. RISD XYZ works to address a range of issues of interest to creatively engaged readers and encourages alumni to contribute to making each issue visually rich and engaging. Published twice a year—in January and June—the magazine is available for free at selected campus locations.
