Checkout this fantastic sampling of Freshman Sketchbooks at RISD, the Rhode Island School of Design.
Each first year student is mailed a blank sketchbook the summer before they start classes to capture examples of whatever they find meaningful. This explorative eye on the world sets the stage for their time at the school and helps instill RISD’s best-in-class approach to teaching design… observing and creating.
Also, for more info about how RISD builds a successful and relevant creative culture… see our recent post on John Maeda and how he believes, ‘Art and design can help solve problems in any industry.‘
