The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Series acknowledges the life and vast contributions of Dr. King in creating a more just and democratic society. Series events and programming offer meaningful moments for service, reflection, self-development, inspiration, and celebration.
Since its inception, the event has been completed by Included by Favor, a design agency founded by Rene Payne, who invited me to be a part of bringing this year's Lecture series to life. This year, RISD has transformed its brand identity. This year's series involved redesigning the MLK Series into a system that is modular yet dynamic, allowing the MLK Series to evolve for future events and speakers.

it was important to highlight Thelma Golden's connection to Culture, Community, Engagement & Learning, incorporating RISD's new brand identity.
