Procedure for Use of the RISD Seal


Policy Statement

The RISD seal is an important and valuable communication tool. Since this mark represents the institution, care must be taken when using it.

The Benson seal has a long history and, through years of careful repeated use, has come to embody the academic and creative values and rigor for which RISD is known around the world.


RISD community members interested in using the seal in any manner and for any purpose must contact the Senior Director of Public Relations to do so. If an external partner requests use of the Benson seal, please contact the Senior Director of Public Relations, who will evaluate the request and, if deemed appropriate, complete a logo usage agreement with the third party and then supply the file.
