Ed­u­ca­tion mat­ters

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Scott Robertson -

Scott looks back on his ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio of ed­u­ca­tional de­sign books and DVDs One high­light from Scott’s var­ied ca­reer is his work in ed­u­ca­tion, and the books he’s helped cre­ate for his art and de­sign pub­lish­ing com­pany, De­sign Stu­dio Press. “In 2002 there weren’t many ways for as­pir­ing con­cept de­sign­ers to learn about our trade, other than the oc­ca­sional ‘art of’ book,” he ex­plains. “I’ve al­ways found the con­cept de­sign process to be very in­ter­est­ing and wanted to cre­ate prod­ucts to share this with oth­ers. Books have been a great way to do this.”

Since then, De­sign Stu­dio Press has pub­lished over 80 ti­tles, and col­lab­o­rated with The Gnomon Work­shop to cre­ate a highly pop­u­lar li­brary of how-to DVDs cover­ing the fun­da­men­tals of per­spec­tive draw­ing and ren­der­ing. “These sub­jects aren’t taught to a high level at very many schools around the world,” Scott says, “but stu­dents un­der­stand the value of this con­tent, hence the pop­u­lar­ity.”
