Google Sketch-Up is 3-D modelling software that is used by architects, engineers, interior designers and interior decorators. To prepare you for working at the forefront of your industry, The Learning Group has created a unique Sketch-Up course in digital interior decorating.
What is Sketch-Up?
Google Sketch-Up is a 3-D modelling software program that can be used for a variety of purposes. It is generally used by architects, engineers and interior designers. It is, however, also very useful for interior decorators.
With Sketch-Up, you can model a room and plan or conceptualise its whole interior. This will allow you to visualise and simulate the finished decorating scheme without ever having to buy a single piece of furniture. This is a great way to plan and present your interior decorating ideas.
The great thing about using 3-D modelling software for interior decorating is that you can work with building and floor plans as well. This makes it easy to construct interiors with a focus on space usage and furniture placement.
Why do I need to learn how to use this software?
Even seasoned interior decorators can benefit from taking a course in Sketch-Up. To be at the top of your field, you always need to be up to date with new trends and industry advancements.
Not only will Sketch-Up help you work more easily, but it will also make you more efficient and technologically advanced than your competitors. Especially in an industry so reliant on trends, using cutting-edge methods will make you seem years ahead of the rest.
Sketch-Up is also useful for developing your career. Being able to model mock-ups and simulated interiors will be a great way to experiment and to build a great visual portfolio.
