Harvard University is the fourth-largest employer in Massachusetts. If you do business here in the Commonwealth, at some point you’re going to work for the Veritas folks.

We’re lucky to have collaborated on three of the university’s publications over the years: a long time ago we redesigned Harvard Magazine, the main alumni magazine, and currently we’re working with the Radcliffe Institute (read about it here) on their alumni publication, and also the magazine of the graduate school of education, Ed.

Ed. was blessed with a striking logo that was created by our friend and colleague Fritz Klaetke of Visual Dialogue in Boston. Klaetke and his team had moved on from Ed. several years ago and recently the logo and the magazine’s interior were in need of a little pick-me-up.

Take a look at the slideshow below to see the results from Fall 2016, the second issue of the redesigned magazine.
