Our studio is small, with a core staff of 14 students who support daily operations, individual projects, and our clients directly. We are dedicated to engaging, first and foremost, in work that feels important and supportive to our community.


As students, our vision is an organization centered around providing for others.

As designers, our approach is equal parts aesthetic and research-based.

Artistic Expression

We thank our clients for supporting our platform for artistic expression as we believe that design can inspire curiosity, discovery, and transformation.

Fairness and Equity

We purposefully invite ongoing conversation that upholds and embodies fair practices and challenges imbalances of power and structural inequities. We are fostering and building an environment that inspires a more equitable future for student voices at RISD. We are open to rebuilding our processes and infastructure, feel free to reach out to us with any feedback or concerns.

Collaboration and Support

We actively develop meaningful, reciprocal relationships with clients and peers, recognizing that diverse lived experiences and practices enrich our processes. We empower designers with desired support through peer-mentoring at every stage─from research and technical expertise to sustained dialogue before, during, and after project development.
