How to become a designer: a real story from Roomble


Roomble continues to follow studentA modern school of design, which in the fall began training a new profession from scratch. Is it difficult or not? What activities do you like the most? And how long does it take to homework? At the beginning of the school year, we chose a student named Svetlana, whose progress we continue to follow. Over the course of several months of training, many events happened: the unsuccessful ones were transferred to other groups, classes increased and active training began. You can read about the beginning of Svetlana's adventures.It has become the norm to go to bed after 24:00, without noticing how time flies while doing homework. In addition to women's necessities, the purse now always contains a pencil, an eraser and a block of sketchbooks. I do not just ride in a tram, but draw, try different textures, invent plots, notice nuances in landscapes beyond the windows that can become an idea. I try to do all the tasks at once, without delay. I hate tails and rush jobs. Svetlana The most exhilarating creative brain activities- in composition, because it is necessary to confirm such concepts as symmetry, asymmetry, dissymmetry with forms, lines, their combinations, variants of shading and texture. Nuances - real objects or objects should not be guessed in the drawing, and all this must be expressed with a black marker and a liner. Working on sketches is like playing with puzzles to put together a picture. The mosaics here are straight and curved lines, flat figures, points. And the picture is something that pleases the eye and satisfies the conditions of the task. To master contrasts and dominants, I painted a nice stack of sheets. Now I have the pain of creativity over symmetry. There are already finished works, but I feel that this is not the case yet. The search for the "picture" continues. Svetlana Related articles The lesson in architectural graphics beganacquaintance with watercolors. The master teaches the washing techniques, shows how to make a base from an ocher solution, which subsequently gives depth and volume to the image. The working material here is the selected base color or a mixture of colors diluted with water with varying degrees of intensity. In the drawing, a water roller is made, which is rolled over the entire figure, after which color and water are added to make a real miracle happen. After several washes, the figure becomes voluminous and convex. Everything is one. There are no transition edges of color, light and shadow. Architectural graphics are diligence, perseverance and blue circles in the eyes. Probably, we draw a little by the standards of the arch-university, but for an amateur it is difficult. It is clear that this stage must be passed. If the first sheets with projections of volumetric bodies took me four hours, then I coped to the eighth sheet in two hours. Svetlana Svetlana's group in color classescame close to the color in the interior. Here is a whole psychological study on the influence of color on a person, the selection of a color scheme for the interior to a certain psychotype of personality. What are the patterns of color contrasts? How does the location of windows on the cardinal points affect the coloristic solution of the room? How does color affect emotions? Colorism combined with science is a delight for children. I discovered Itten's Art of Color. Inspires from the first pages. It turns out that Itten was the first to discover and explain the regularities of color and to study its physical properties. Anyone, knowing these laws, can easily use them in their professional activities. Svetlana In drawing lessons, students continuework with foreshortenings and solid bodies, depicting them in perspective. Tracing paper overlaid on the finished nine cubes helps as a base. Cylinders, balls, hexagonal prisms are drawn, the inset is mastered and light is hatched with a shadow on a smooth and wrinkled fold. When working with perspective, knowledge of geometry is very helpful, but even without them, everything can be done. Gradually, the group is getting closer to sketching. What would a cube look like in perspective if a part of it was cut out in the form of a triangular prism? And if you decided to insert a cylinder into it? Very beautiful! And now we can draw it. Svetlana At the end of November, the defense of diploma theses was also held.projects for a twelve-month group. Students exhibited visualizations of rooms decorated on large stands from the most interesting angles, drawings for planning, communications, lighting, furniture arrangement, as well as a color map and an estimate in an explanatory note. The project is submitted to the commission and the audience (the defense is always open to SES students, potential employers and guests), and the graduate should tell:

  • legend - everything about the customer, family members, the location of the object, the orientation of the windows, etc .;
  • on the parameters of the room - a situational plan;
  • about his planning decision, defining the style and name of the interior;
  • zoning space, its ergonomics;
  • conduct a tour of the apartment;
  • justify the color solution;
  • indicate the materials used;
  • plan of light design;
  • answer questions about the cost of the project, its economy.

The questions of the commission members are like the last oneconsultation before going out. The work is really very different, but very worthy. The curator of the course for each project highlighted the strengths and gave valuable advice. СШД once again can be proud of the graduates.
