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.
