June 24–August 2, 2019

Summer Design Intensives are an immersive studio experience at RISD focused on specific and experimental topics related to new trends and technology. These programs explore new and experimental components within the concepts of design, fashion and art.

The Design Intensives are perfect for professionals and students who seek to experiment with materials, technology and design.
