Who can attend:
This event is open to all local graphic design students (from Rhode Island College, Johnson and Wales, Salve Regina, RISD, etc). As well as young design professionals working in the field.

The lecture will deal with issues of type design, offset printing and web design and development. April 23, Tuesday 6:30pm RISD Design Center, Room 212 30 North Main Street, Providence, RI
