DT: Going Digital

Intended for textile and fashion students wishing to develop digital design skills, the emphasis of this course is the creative use of drawing software to produce industry and portfolio quality textile designs, garment renderings, and professional presentation strategies. Using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Indesign, students learn to translate drawings and ideas into digital renderings, digitize and manipulate images, create and develop an original line of industry quality textile designs, and to scale and create repeats and colorways for production purposes. Additionally, the course introduces students to computer rendering of basic flat technical garment sketches and construction detailing for presentation boards and spec sheets.
