Sketching: Drawing Techniques For Product Designers

Recommended Posts

Guest Gappie

Hello Everyone,

 

Busy shopping for presents because of upcoming "Sinterklaas" (dutch version of Santa Claus) I found the perfect book that teaches drawing techniques for product design. I've worked with Design Sketching in the past but what bothered me was the lack of process drawings, the dominance of computer sketches and shortage of marker technique explanation, therefore I've been searching for ages to find a better book on sketching.

 

The book I've found: Sketching, drawing techniques for product designers by Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur, 2007 contains the same qualitative drawings as design sketching but also the process and ideation sketches making it way better, and for 39 euro the price is almost equal. Besides that, many well known dutch product design agencies and designers have contributed to the book, amongst which Waacs Design, BMW(van Hooydonk), Marcel Wanders and Springtime

For everyone still looking for a great book on sketching and marker techniques for both beginners and professional designers I'd truly recommend this one! :thumbsup:

Yeah we have the book here at the office because of the contribution we did (well, not me, but one of the senior designers that used to work here). It's a really nice book, recommended reading!

Here's the ISBN: 978 906 369 171 4

Can anyone tell me where I can find this book in the US by Christmas?

 

My husband is an industrial designer and i'd love to get it for him as a Christmas presents, but all the online sites say that it isn't published yet or that it isn't available until Jan or Feb 08.

 

If I order it from the publisher's website in Amsterdam do you think I will get it before Dec 22?

 

Thanks!!!

 

Feel free to email me directly if you can help at all!!! Thanks again!

Hi IDwife,

 

The main publishers in Amsterdam have links with a distribution company in the US. Their website is http://www.gingkopress.com/index.htm.

 

They might be able to help you as they are partners with BIS Amsterdam. Alternatively, get blackwells to order it from the distributors.

 

I will be doing the same in the UK to save on shipping costs, and to get my hands on it sooner :)

 

Full list here for those who are interested: http://www.bispublishers.nl/uploaded/adver...stributeurs.pdf

 

Good luck!
