Drawing for Designers

Drawing for Designers

London College of Communication
Taught by
Stephen Hall


Freehand design drawing is an essential part of the design development process allowing the designer to experiment with ideas. It is a crucial skill needed in addition to CAD skills as it helps to understand spatiality and it can be less restrictive to creativity than using computer software.

Students will be taught to hand draw using one and two point perspective and to use different drawing and rendering techniques which best communicate their design ideas.
