This course is ideal for people that have an intermediate level when it comes to digital design skills for footwear but would like to optimize their workflow. If you know a little Photoshop, Illustrator, Modo and Zbrush and know the basics of Rhino and/or Blender, then this course will help you to create ultra fast, ultra effective and ultra fun shortcuts that will bring your digital design speed to record heights!
For instance, you can learn how to turn to a grayscale Photoshop image straight into an interactive 3D model. Or you could edit several 3D models at the same time. Your instructor Kostika Spaho is an absolute 3D wizzard; he set up the 3D design team at KEEN and created the most amazing 3D printed shoes together with his wife Ica Paru. Watch this video to hear him explain how he got to his workflow and why he would like to teach it to you:
In the last day of the course Kostika will help participants solve the main bottlenecks they encounter in their digital design process, although it is very likely that the smart combinations and clever insights that he presented will have already solved the majority of those. Here you get a sneak peek of the kinds of smart workflows you will learn:
Level: intermediate, you are required to bring a laptop with Photoshop, Illustrator, Modo, Zbrush and Rhino installed. If you do not own all the software, then please use the free trial versions. You do not need in-depth knowledge of all the required software, but we do expect you have some experience in 3D design already. If you are in doubt whether you should choose the beginner course or this intermediate course, then just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can determine the best choice for you.
