If you have the creative ideas for your own shoe collection, but you’re not familiar with the sketching and painting tools needed to express them graphically, you will be guided in learning the techniques of hand drawing and the manual rendering of shoes and soles, together with the classic digital software programs of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, so that you can graphically present your shoe project in a way that is clear, coherent, and comprehensive.
This program is particularly beneficial to:
DESIGNERS who would like to launch a footwear collection, despite having no experience
PATTERN MAKERS who want an “upgrade” in their profession through knowledge of the creative and design side of footwear and, thus, better understand the “reasons” of the designers
NEWCOMERS Everyone who is curious to know the expressive tools of shoe collection design.
This intensive study program lays the groundwork to tackle the following professional careers:
As always, we will start from lasts, because in Arsutoria, we work with the right proportions and are not interested in disconnecting the components that will then be used to realise samples from reality.
We will dedicate part of the course to learning how to design soles. There are many details that are important to learn, and when working on the design of an athletic shoe or a sneaker, this component gives a fundamental contribute to overall design project.
Pen and paper, but also markers, because colour is the first tool in giving a three-dimensional character to the design. We will practice techniques of manual rendering even before beginning to use a computer. This base will be fundamental for then learning how to make the most out of the digital instruments.
Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are the tools that every shoe designer must know how to use today. We will dedicate various hours to learning how to use them in the best way possible.
For Arsutoria, training in the use of digital tools is aimed at learning all that is needed to create a shoe design.
