This little book is the first issue of Rivet. Our goal was to show off some of the fantastic work that is constantly being produced by students and alumni. The submissions that have caught our attention came from people that chose to work with unconventional methods and processes, for example, using 89 pieces of string to communicate a phrase, or using internet stock photos to create surreal landscapes. We also had the pleasure of having Fiona Smyth to tell us why she loves zines, as well as an interview with Tom Briggs who won the Medal in Graphic Design last year.
We wanted to create a platform to show off the best of our homegrown talent and judging by the submissions we received for this issue, we think we have achieved that.
