Every artist or designerQuite BrightArt & Design Department
Every artist or designer NEEDS an excellent business education, because the vast majority of your time will be spent marketing your product. RISD does not teach the business of art or design, and you can learn all the design and art skills you need by actually working at it. Go to Babson instead.

female students are not exactly safe from inapropriate behavior, 83% of all enrolled are female- daughters,wives, mothers and so on, 83 cents of every dollar goes into this Institues pockets. certainly it should not be put into the pockets of unsafe professors.

Question
Fully devoted modernists need only apply.Quite BrightArchitecture
Fully devoted modernists need only apply. If you wish to question or challenge in any way the fundamental rules of modernism you will be failed out of the program. Design Principles is intended to break down and erase your previous human-instinct senses about good design and re-program you with the doctrine of the Bauhaus, you'll be puzzled and confused as to whats happening during this semester then come wintersession they'll be all finished re-programming you or you'll be looking for a new major.
