There is a dearth of books covering drawing and product design. Drawing for Designers fills this gap, offering a comprehensive guide to drawing for product/ industrial designers and students. As well as industrial product design, the book encompasses automotive design and the design of other 3D artefacts such as jewelry and furniture.
Covering both manual and computer drawing methods, the book follows the design process: from initial concept sketches; through presentation drawings and visualizations; general arrangement and detail drafting; to fully dimensioned production drawings; and beyond to technical illustrations and exploded/assembly diagrams used for publicity and instructing the end user in the product's assembly, operation, and maintenance. Case study spreads featuring famous designer productsshown both as drawn concepts and the finished object are interspersed with the chapters. There are also several 'how-to-do-it' step-by-step sequences.
Alan Pipes is a freelance writer, illustrator, webmaster, and part-time publisher specializing in the applications of computers in graphic design, fine art, illustration, and product design. He is the former editor of CadCam International and the author of Production for Graphic Designers.
