RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN (RISD)

Corinne Ang is currently pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design at RISD. She originally hails from the tropical climates of the Philippines and Hong Kong. Corinne’s work aims to foster interpersonal connections and to engage an exchange. While playing with the creation of dialogues, research and materiality, she’s grown particularly fond of building experimental publications, identities and letter, and type design. Corinne always hopes to make with generosity, livelihood and plurality. Furthermore, she is a solid believer in: shorts, weather above 10ºC, snacks as meals, and that the Risograph is one of the best things ever made.

HAVE THE CHALLENGES OF 2020 CHANGED HOW YOU THINK ABOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DESIGNERS?

Not a whole lot. I’ve always viewed graphic design as inherently cultural and communal. The events of this year amplified that, though I’ve noticed an interesting shift in intention and mentality during this period.
