Hope everyone’s had a great New Year and a wonderful start to 2014!
We closed last semester out by inviting Spencer Nugent of www.idsketching.com to lead a lecture and workshop on product sketching and visual communication. He started things off by discussing the significance of using sketching as one of the many vehicles for transforming an idea to a product. You can download the full presentation here.
The following workshop provided a small group of students with the opportunity to work through drawing various objects with Spencer and receive suggestions for improvement. Spencer then demonstrated his preferred workflow when using digital tools to sketch and render. The resulting shoe – rendered in Photoshop using a tablet – can be downloaded here.
IDSA and IXDA teamed up to bring you an introduction to web and print portfolios – both which are necessary to showcase your projects to potential employers. We’ll be offering portfolio help desks this semester, so stay tuned!
Keep an eye out for our next newsletter and event calendars (located in the COA West 2nd Floor Atrium & ID senior studio bulletin boards) which will announce the new events we’ve got planned for each month.
Exciting news: the 2014 IDSA Southern District Conference, “Design: Mind. Body. Soul.” will be held April 12th in Savannah, Georgia! Click here for more info.
For those of you new to the IDSA @ Georgia Tech chapter, we have neither dues nor weekly meetings, but instead focus on small workshops and events devoted to design skill growth and networking amongst both peers and professionals. If you haven’t done so, stay in the loop by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.
