Join Dave Schultze for an in-depth discussion in this video Design exploration with sketching, part of Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form.
- Sketching whether analog or digital, is the exploration…of your idea, which is a three dimensional form,…but then translated back into 2D.…Even with 3D modeling, sketching is still the most effective…and speedy way to generate ideas, both good and bad.…And that's an important point, if you don't produce enough…bad solutions you'll never know if the one you selected…was your best effort, especially if you stop early…or run out of time.…So for me, it's a process of quantity in search of quality.…We just saw an architectural sketch with time-lapse…and now a page full of perfectly space doodles,…that's mostly how it's done in the movies.…
The real process is very messy and can even vary…from project to project, but done efficiently…there should always be a constant flow back and forth…between design, the research and the development.…It's a visual and functional aider of process…which is propelled by thinking and sketching.…Now I know that sounds a little wordy,…so here's an analogy, or is it a metaphor?…I like to compare sketching to writing,…
First, see how the same idea can be applied in a smaller 2D scale—like graphics and print, fine art, and advertising. Dave then blows it up in 3D, and showcases examples from product design, furniture, architecture, and urban planning.
Projects and concepts are presented in an engaging and sometimes irreverent manner with images, videos, and personal and professional stories from Dave. Check out this fast-paced tour as it covers topics ranging from grids and axes to designing with humor.
