How to become a designer: results of six months of training

For half a year our experiment lasts, during thewhich we follow the success of the student of the Modern School of Design. She started the design training from the ground up and during that time achieved great results, and also successfully passed the intermediate test. In December, the first block of disciplines ended - this is color, composition, architectural graphics and drawing. Were mastered the accents and re-emphasis, the basics of sketching, volumetric-spatial design, the front perspective, as well as copying the finished plan of the apartment with the arrangement of furniture and observance of lines, the design of the explication and the execution of the cut. Articles on the topic At night, the drawings are dreamed, and you look forward to the weekend, because at last you can sit down for new homework. Significantly increased the level of knowledge of "classmates": if before they did not have time during the lesson, now we do several sketches for the same time. Svetlana

All the theoretical part of the students receive, and for each educational material, appropriate homework assignments are selected. On the course "Interior" is learning the basics of space, as well as techniques and tools for translating ideas, while for classes on the computer was even allocated an extra day. The students learned that working with tectonics andplastic, using decorative techniques, choosing a color and light solution, you can build an interior. All-round development involves learning all the styles so that you can find your favorite one. Therefore, in the classes on history, all directions were taken from the styles popular in Ancient Greece and Byzantium, and ending with Baroque, classicism and modernity. Teachers do not just show and tell interesting things, but also share personal experiences and valuable advice. As for the computer, I had a fear of the ArchiCAD program. But we are so well explained that we cope with all practical tasks, gain confidence and develop skills. Svetlana With the ArchiCAD program, students collidedfor the first time, no one in it worked. At the very beginning, everyone tried to copy the interior taken from the Internet, and then went on to model their own plastic solutions. Gradually, the students learned to draw walls, ceilings, windows, doors, their compositions, and after a couple of lessons they began to think up the placement of furniture, the arrangement of light sources and different levels. After the New Year holidays, a few moredisciplines. The actual interior is splashes and failures that have become an archival history, and all the most significant trends in art from the beginning of the 20th century to our days. Avant-gardists and Fauvists, Cubists and Abstractsists, Scandinavian style and postmodernism, the first architectural school Bauhaus and the school of Memphis, Charles Zhenoray and Andy Warhol, Katharina Beecher and Frank Luedel Wright, Philippe Starck and Karim Rashid, Ron Arat and Fabio November - you can transfer it for a long time.

Within the framework of the subject "Building Materials", teachers take students to the salons of building and finishing materials, light, tiles, design and decor studios. There future designers get acquainted with the assortment, features and advantages of the goods in comparison with competitors and partners of the market. In mid-March, a comprehensive set-off was appointed,for which it is necessary to design a stand. Mandatory requirements: the proportionality of the materials placed, the color feed, the background, the actual font, the clear lines of the layout. A folder with the following drawings is attached to the stand: the situation plan (before the alteration), the plan for the installation of the partitions, the plan with the furniture arrangement, the floor plan with the layout of the floor covering, the ceiling plan, the lighting plan, the sections and the sweeps. We also learned to write an explanatory note: the name of the project, the description of the situational plan, the technical task, the basic plastic solution, the light, the color embodiment, the materials and textures used. Time was enough, but - as always - the last day before the test was the most fruitful. Svetlana At the very meeting of the committee, in whichThe teachers entered the disciplines. Students for 7-10 minutes told about the options for interior solutions in four types of rooms of their projects waiting area in the office. During the speech, they mentioned color samples, work with light, showed the renders at the stand and how the technical building for the design was completed. All ended with answers to the questions of the commission. Of course, professional speech is still undeveloped, the language stumbles, there are no suitable language in the lexicon, it still needs to learn. After discussion, we were announced results - we all managed successfully. Of course, later there will be an analysis of mistakes and luck, but for now you can exhale. Till Monday. Since March 20, a new stage - the design of the office. Svetlana
