RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN (RISD) BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Alice Taranto is a native New Yorker savoring her senior year at RISD. Alice collaborates on multi-format zine publications with her twin sister Daphne, who is a senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art. The sisters are currently producing the seventh issue of YTB Zine, which they founded their freshman years. When she is not in the GD studios, Alice can be found making neon signs, continuing her interest in glass. Things people don’t normally know about Alice include that she plays the flute and is one of seven siblings.
