presentation sketching

February 5 2015

Here at the Interaction Design program at the Umeå Institute of Design we value sketching as a tool for developing and communicating designs. We teach how to sketch in all sorts of forms and materials and it sometimes may seem we emphasize sketching and prototyping in hardware and code. However, any ideas around sketching are deeply rooted in its original form of drawings and visuals (I have posted on such sketching before).

Another great resource to expand your sketching skills and understanding is the latest book by Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur of : Sketching product design Presentation.

The book spans an introduction to our innate responses to visual stimuli, basics of gestalt theory, to a conclusion on visual rhetoric, using lots of examples and showcases from various design practices.

(full disclosure: Koos was my sketching/drawing teacher at Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft, and so was Roselien)
