Designer Primer

Designer Primer

by Tom Porter (Author), Sue Goodman (Author)


This fully illustrated manual of objective drawing and design drafting skills has been designed specifically for students of architecture and the arts. The novice is introduced to drawing mediums and their rendering potentials, along with a variety of useful methods for achieving drawing accuracy. The book begins by examining the art of drawing as an extension of visual perception, and aims to explain the difference between what students see, and what they think they see. Practical pictorial images are dismantled and analyzed in terms of their working parts. The text then discusses drawing mediums, which are evaluated for their sketching capabilities. The functions, spatial prowess and drafting techniques specific to each orthographic and design drawing type are reviewed, along with projects designed to develop design drawing techniques. The goal of the text is to help the student create professional, visually compelling graphics, while taking into account the important issues of production time.
