Seal and wordmark

Request permission to use the RISD wordmark and Benson seal

The RISD wordmark and Benson seal are important and valuable communication tools. Since these marks represent the institution, care must be taken when using them. The Benson seal in particular has a long history and, through years of careful repeated use, has come to embody the academic and creative values and rigor RISD is known for around the world.

If an external partner requests use of the Benson seal or RISD wordmark, please contact Jaime Marland, who will evaluate the request and, if deemed appropriate, complete a logo usage agreement with the third party and then supply the file. RISD community members interested in using the seal, in any manner and for any purpose, should touch base with Jaime Marland before doing so, as well.
