designing onscreen graphics is the most labor-intensive part of our custom design process. the unique and creative part comes into play when the first image is created and sent to the artist. the artist usually works in clay and is responsible for sculpting that first image. that first image will serve as a road map for the next few weeks leading up to the manufacturing stage.
it is one thing to sketch a concept in clay, it is another to bring the idea into cad and bring the lines to life. our designers have been using the same 3design caddialogue since the beginning, and it has worked very well for them over the past few years.
once the first design has been established, the next is the software. we always recommend using the industry standard software available. these tools have proven their value and are very reliable. adobe illustrator, coreldraw, and autocad are great tools to get the basics done. we can not stress enough the importance of understanding your design in these programs, so that when you bring it into 3design, it makes sense and feel right. 3design is not a replacement for the above mentioned programs, it is the computer version of your computer art software and can work very well with these existing programs and adds another level of realism.
