New Course: Making Design History & Theory Fun

Welcome from Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form by Dave Schultze

Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form is an innovative new one-hour course that offers a refreshing take on design history, theory, and insights. Author Dave Schultze demystifies a variety of 2D and 3D design principles, and then provides real-world examples of what works — or doesn’t work — and why.

The material is presented in an engaging and sometimes irreverent manner with images, videos, and personal stories from Dave. Check out this fast-paced tour as it covers topics ranging from grids and axes to designing with humor.

First Ever 3D Animation

This historical video was recently re-discovered after being lost for many years. It was produced in 1972 and is believed to be the world’s first computer-generated 3D animation. It was created by Ed Catmull, a true pioneer of 3D technology, who was a computer scientist at the University of Utah (birthplace of the famous Utah teapot.) If the name sounds familiar, it’s because a few years later he was one of the founders of Pixar.
