Reed’s calligraphic legacy is impressive. Numerous alumni work in various aspects of book design, graphic design, and calligraphy; a sample follows.


  Environmental graphic designer Elizabeth Anderson specializes in signs that help people learn about their environment and how to navigate their way through it. She is a principal and project designer with Anderson Krygier, whose work adorns schools, hospitals, libraries, businesses, and historic landmarks throughout the Pacific Northwest. She has taught at Portland State University and Pacific Northwest College of Art and says, “More than ever my liberal arts education keeps me going. Good design and good business require new learning and analysis, and are fueled by clear writing and constant communication.”
