RISD Views 1993-2009, is the predecessor to alumni magazine RISD XYZ. Published four times a year, this magazine was designed to keep members of the RISD community informed about each other and the college and to reflect the diversity of talent evident among alumni, faculty and students. Readers contribute to the magazine as guest designers, photographers, illustrators and writers; as subjects of articles; and through submissions of ideas and information for the class notes section, which reports on the professional accomplishments of graduates.
