The RISD Graphic Design Senior Show

Copywriting, Exhibit Design

The graphic design senior show took place in early March of 2018 at Woods Gerry Gallery. As a member of the show’s committee, I worked as copywriter and as one of several exhibition organizers.

The show’s theme was based on the oft-noted obsessiveness of the graphic design discipline. “The Graphic Order” is the name we gave to our cult of graphic obsession.

When it came to writing copy, a certain vernacular was called for. The introductory text is here shown hanging in the “Hall of the Order.”

Another feature of the exhibition I worked on was the type wall—literally, a freestanding wall with obscure pangrams projected onto it. Each of the fifteen typefaces (projected in groups of 5) was designed by a member of the senior class. The wall looked something like this:
