Art school candidates and attendees, I need your help...

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by imported_El Mamerro, Jan 14, 2002.

  1. Although I realize the potential for this thread to be closed down, I need to do some research and I think this a good place to ask, so I might as well...

    I'm doing an internship with an information design company that's been hired by RISD (which happens to be the school I go to) to create an online campus map/student life experience, or something along those lines. The current RISD site, while pretty and somewhat informative about certain things, really fails to deliver what being in RISD is like. And that's what we've been told to give them.

    Although my being in RISD gives me a better idea than most about what being in here is like, I'd like to know from people who are applying to RISD. What about RISD interests you? What have you heard about RISD that sounds dope? What about RISD turns you off? What do you see in RISD that other art schools lack, and vice-versa? Also, more important, would be feedback from people who applied but decided not to attend RISD. If there's anything that definitely turned you off, let us know, so that we can either omit or blatantly lie about it.

    In the words of our boss, "This site has to make RISD look sexy as fuck. It's gotta have huge fucking tits." Any help would be throughly appreciated. Beer,

    i dont see any real reason to close this.. game on i guess.

    i didnt even apply to RISD cus it was way too far from home

    very helpful info, i know, thank me later.
  4. No, dude, everything helps, seriously. With that little bit, you're already telling me that this site should have global imagery that makes it seem like RISD's everywhere, not just stuck way up in fucking New England. Not thanks for you yet, you ungrateful bastard. Beer,

    I went to RISD before they had a website. Does that count for anything?

    I wasted some nice money on art school, but it wasn't RISD. I've heard about that school though.

    If I have any advice, I would say to include some shit in your advertising campaign about teaching kids the BUSINESS end of art as a career. If there's business classes there, pump up your image as more than a cute art school -- play up the "how to market yourself" angle, very few schools do. If there are no business classes there then tell the school to fucking start some, it's at least 3 times more important to learn than art itself.

    A free porn link might work as well ... I would definitely visit the site if it offered quality free porn.
