Drawing for Product Designers de Kevin Henry

Drawing for Product Designers
Kevin Henry
With its tutorial-based approach, this is a practical guide to
both hand-and computer-drawn design. Readers will learn
to think three-dimensionally and build complex design
ideas that are structurally sound and visually clear.
The book also illustrates how basic drawing skills underpin
the use of computer-aided design and graphic software.
While these applications assist the designer in creating
physical products, architectural spaces and virtual
interfaces, a basic knowledge of sketching and drawing
allows the designer to fully exploit the software.
Foundational chapters show how these technical skills fit
into a deeper and more intuitive feeling for visualization
and representation, while featured case studies of leading
designers, artists and architects illustrate the full range of
different drawing options available.
Hundreds of hand-drawn sketches and computer models
have been specially created to demonstrate critical geometry
and show how to build on basic forms and exploit principles
of perspective to develop sketches into finished illustrations.
There’s also advice on establishing context, shading and
realizing more complex forms.
Kevin Henry is Professor at Columbia College in Chicago
where he is coordinator of the Art and Design Department’s
Product Design programme. He is also an independent
design consultant and an award-winning furniture designer.
Kevin has interviewed leading designers such as Petra
Blaisse and Konstantin Grcic and is a regular speaker on
both furniture and design.
