Product design students need to communicate their ideas in a variety of formats. The increased use of computers and the availability of design-related software have influenced the way they express their ideas through traditional media such as hand sketches, illustration, hand-made models and rough prototypes. The main goal of this course is to re-introduce traditional presentation techniques and tools by using hand-processes aided by computer technologies. Computer use will be addressed as a means to improve and aid students' ability to quickly generate clear form plus function -- communication pieces that express product features, materials, manufacturing processes and assemblies. Students will learn and master free-sketching techniques that will be digitized and turned into final presentation boards. This methodology will allow them to gain confidence in their natural non-electronic skills at the same time that they keep up to date with the latest technological tools available for 2D and 3-D designers.
