RISD Names New President

John Maeda The Rhode Island School of Design has named John Maeda to be their new president. Maeda’s background in new media and corporate design makes him a very interesting choice for the school who’s history has usually bent more towards the fine/practical arts. At 41 Maeda will be the youngest president in the school’s history. Outgoing president Roger Mandle describes Maeda as “a humanist. He is a genius — and he gets things done.”

RISD has more information and a cute little video.

Big ups to Barnaby Evans for the tip on this
