This CD-ROM and workbook package helps students and professionals pursuing a career in Interior Design improve their impromptu sketching skills when working face-to-face with clients. The CD-ROM contains timed exercises that increase in difficulty as the student progresses through the course. The students must complete and reflect on how they might improve each of their sketches and sketching times in order to move on to the next exercise. The students will have the option to repeat these exercises as many times as they need in order to feel comfortable with the sketches they have produced and the time taken to complete them. This spiral-bound workbook containing special paper serves as the students' sketchbook.
Easy to fold spiral binding which makes the book easy to hold in one's lap while working at a computer
Special, thick paper and a blotter to allow for clean sketches
Areas for students to note their sketching times and keep track of their overall progress
Extra pages for students to repeat scenarios several times
Sketch galleries that contain examples of possible solutions to each sketching exercise for the students to compare and contrast their styles
Sketching Challenges at the end of each section that offer students more incentive to complete every scenario
Exercises that contain voice-overs of "clients" directing the users in "real" situations; these "clients" change each time the student repeats the exercise
