Introduction to Three-Dimensional Design is the first book to teach graphic design students the fundamentals of three-dimensional design through hands-on drawing and model projects. The book combines key concepts with carefully crafted exercises so students can apply three-dimensional design principles in practice. From initial sketches through experimental prototypes to the final model solutions, students will develop a deeper understanding of the often complex elements and principles of three-dimensional design.
