Interior Design

Interior designers make indoor spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting essential and decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials. They must be able to read blueprints and must adhere to building codes and inspection regulations, as well as other considerations, such as accessibility standards. Considering how the space will be used and how people will move through the space, designers may specialize in particular types of projects, such as homes, hospitals, or hotels. Although some sketches may be freehand, most interior designers use computer-aided design (CAD) software for most of their drawings. Throughout the design process, interior designers often use building information modeling (BIM) software to create 3D visualizations of their floorplans.

Interior designers produce designs, plans, and drawings for construction and demolition, lighting, electrical layouts, and building permits. Sustainable designers suggest strategies to improve energy and water efficiencies and indoor air quality as well as environmentally sustainable products, such as bamboo and cork for floors. They may obtain certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council. The National Association of Schools of Art and Design accredits colleges and universities that have programs in art and design.

Fashion Design Process

Fashion designers create original clothing, accessories, and footwear. They sketch designs, select fabrics and patterns, and give instructions on how to make the products they design. For some fashion designers, the first step in creating a new design is researching current fashion and making predictions about future trends, such as by reading reports published by fashion industry trade groups. Other fashion designers create collections using a variety of inspirations, including art media, their surroundings, or cultures they have experienced and places they have visited.

After they have an initial idea, fashion designers try out various fabrics and produce a prototype, often with less expensive material than will be used in the final product. They work with models to see how the design will look and adjust the designs as needed. Although most designers first sketch their designs by hand, many now also sketch their ideas digitally with computer-aided design (CAD) programs. CAD allows designers to see their work on virtual models. They can try different colors, designs, and shapes while making adjustments more easily than they can when working with real fabric on real people.

In order to release either the spring or fall collection, it generally takes 6 months of continuous work, from initial design concept to final production. Designers produce samples with the actual materials that will be used in manufacturing. Samples that get good responses from fashion editors or trade and fashion shows are then manufactured and sold to consumers. The Internet allows independent fashion designers to offer their products outside of traditional brick-and-mortar stores. These designers may license their work, and ship directly to the consumer, without having to invest in a physical shop to showcase their collections.

Video Game Design

A video game begins with a proposal that is drafted by a team of game designers, who make gameplay and layout come alive, often through experimentation with several themes, as well as improvement on existing computer games. All of this is created through computer software and computer scripting, which generates commands, events, objects and characters that players will interact with. Most designers will spend at least some of their time as testers, and are responsible for communication within the video game design team.

A game designer works on the balance of the game and its rule system, while an environmental designer is responsible for creating varied video game scenarios. It's important that you also love to play video games. As simple as it sounds, having experience and familiarity with playing video games is a crucial step towards becoming a professional video game designer. Video game designers come up with game concepts, characters, setting, storylines, and game play. Designers also must work closely with artists and programmers to create the scripting language and artistic vision for a game. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in May, 2021 that the average annual salary for multimedia artists and animators was $85,300.

Designers may need a bachelor's degree, although aspiring game designers can get the necessary training from computer science, or software engineering. The coursework for a game design program covers subjects like 2D and 3D modeling and animation, level and interface design, storyboard rendering, drawing, and scripting. With very complex games, such as MMORPGs, or a big budget action or sports title, designers may involve dozens of programmers. In larger companies like Electronic Arts, each aspect of the video game may have a separate producer, lead designer and several general designers.
