Design Drawing

Design Drawing will focus on developing drawing and sketching skills as used in Industrial Design practice. Students will engage 3D forms and pictorial narratives in 2D space. Design Drawing begins with sketching foundations and perspective construction (line weight, composition, basic layout, lighting) and continues with freehand shading, color rendering techniques, and an introduction to digital representation (pixel and vector based software). Along with developing sketching fluency, the class will explore ideation techniques and rapid visualization strategies, and will instruct on relevant software. Feedback on each student's design process and abilities will be provided through individual desk crits with the instructor as well as group presentations and critiques.
