DRAWING TECHNIQUES USED BY DESIGNERS

AN INTRODUCTION

V. Ryan 2010

 

Designers and architects use a range of drawing techniques, to sketch and draw design ideas. A designer must master a variety of drawing techniques in order to be successful in their competitive world. The following drawing techniques are often used by Product Designers:
Isometric Drawing, including free hand isometric.
Perspective Drawing.
Flow Charts.
Orthographic Projection.
Computer Aided Design.
Prototypes.
Mood Boards.
 
Drawing techniques / skills allow the designer to communicate his/her ideas to customers/clients and consumers, so that they are clear and easy to understand. Presenting a design by using appropriate drawing and presentation techniques will ultimately lead to good business. After all, who would pay a designer who had difficulty presenting his / her design ideas?
 
A selection of drawing styles/techniques are seen below. All or some of these techniques are used by designers, during the design of a product.
 
 
 
 
STANDARD FLOW CHARTS USED BY DESIGNERS
 
Part of a production flow chart is drawn below. This shows three of the stages of the manufacture of a product. The manufacturing sequence, the equipment that is required for each stage and the quality checks, are all aspects of the flow chart. Designers plan the manufacturing sequence using this type of flow chart.
 
Designers of electronic devices, program ‘programmable circuits’ using flow charts like the one seen below. This is a relatively simply flow chart that controls a set of security lights. Electronics dominates our lives and often the devices we use have been programmed by designers.
