RISD Museum Rolls Out New Identity, Website

There’s a trend a-brewin’ in the form of deconstructed, shape-shifting graphic identities for art museums. We still can’t stomach the “responsive W” that Experimental Jetset cooked up for the Whitney, but Project Projects is onto something with its dynamic new look for the RISD Museum. Part of an overhaul that included a name change (it was formerly known as The Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design) and the first website redesign in the museum’s history, the fresh mark was inspired by the architectural space of the RISD Museum—composed of five buildings located on the historic East Side of Providence, Rhode Island–and consists of a stylized “M” within which the letters R, I, S, and D are positioned.

Check out the identity’s fluid, interactive application on the new website, also a Project Projects project. “Throughout [the site], colorful bands function as gallery walls and create a sense of progression from room to room as the visitor scrolls, dimensionalizing the site and connecting it to the identity system’s emphasis on the museum as a space,” note the designers, who have mixed the bands with “button-like tags [that] foster a more networked type of discovery through the museum’s collections from Ancient to Contemporary, grouping objects by time period, genre, material, and technique to emphasize methods of making across disciplines.”

Taking Design to Task

Another design magazine?! Really? “Don’t worry,” says the first issue of Task Newsletter, “It’s going to be great.”

A look at the contributors is convincing. The designers-slash-editors: Emmet Byrne from Minneapolis (and of the Walker Art Center), Alex DeArmond from Arnhem (Where? That’s what we said, too.), and Jon Sueda, who was in LA and now is in Oakland. Additional contributors are Kristina Bell, Geoff Halber, Kate McKinney and Project Projects. And then there are the interviews: Mevis and van Deursen, Eric Olson, Zak Kyes, Michael Worthington, and the all-important coverage of the 2008 Cat Lovers Against the Bomb calendar.

Yes, yes. We think there’s some room in designer hearts this holiday for Task.
