Write and design an introduction for your degree project. I’m using the term “introduction” because it best suits the purpose of the document. Your introductions will be read in advance of your presentation (by the critics), and be archived with your visual documentation.
In class today we will review a few examples of introductions from books. These will show you a range of writing styles, each appropriate to the subject matter and tone of the project. The design of the introductions is also in keeping with the contents and tone of the overall project. Note how the formal choices communicate the tone of the work.
For next week
Write and design an introduction for your degree project. It should include your name, the title of your project, the words “introduction,” and “RISD” and the year.
