lynda.com authors focus on 3D design at AIGA event

Published by | Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Last Thursday night, AIGA/LA hosted three lynda.com authors for an evening that focused on 3D design. The event was held at Continuum, which is one of the best-looking design studios in Venice. The evening started with pizza and beer, then the authors took the stage.

Author Dave Schultze showed how Rhino can be used in product and package design. He showed a very cool Philco PC he designed as well as some very realistic renderings. Author David Lee showed some of the finer aspects of Sketchbook Pro, which is used extensively in illustration and design. I showed tips and tricks for Google Sketchup. After the talks ended, free passes and other goodies were handed out to the audience.

The event was a success, and it introduced a lot of Los Angeles-based creative types to a whole new dimension in design.

This past week at lynda.com we had an impressive showcase of talent.

Dave Schultze is a new author at lynda.com. He is recording Rhino training for those of you in the 3D field. He teaches Toy Design at Otis College of Art and Design, and his body of work is impressive to say the least. You may already be familiar with the toys and products he has deigned for his company SchultzeWORKS, such as the singing toothbrushes for Hasbro.

The beautiful and sleek Philco PC was featured in any number of magazines, but most recently, it was entered in the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA Awards).

Dave was in good company with Chris Orwig, David Blatner, and Deke McClelland all working away in the recording booths and live action stages to bring you some new training. We took all of the authors and a few local content managers out on the town for some creative brainstorming and pasta. We are looking forward to sharing their training with you soon.
