Description

This text approaches the act of drawing as a communication tool that students will carry forth in the design firm and addresses why hand drawing is valued within design firms for conceptual design, design development, and client presentations. The progression of methods and concepts builds from an introduction to drawing methods and drawing rationale through two-dimensional drawing techniques, three-dimensional drawing techniques, and presentation drawings.

Designed to strengthen a student's understanding of visual representation and technical drawing by visually teaching, this text provides students with the skills to translate three-dimensional ideas into two-dimensional drawings that effectively communicate their design concept. Despite the increased reliance on digital media, hand drawing remains a powerful tool in conceptual design presentations because it emphasizes the large idea by leaving fine details to the client s imagination.
