In the modern workplace of interior architecture and design, digital skills are highly valued; in the future, digital skills will be vital. The four main areas of digital skills are essential are – firstly the creation which is followed by correct communication. Coordination and collaboration are as well as important in completing the important cycle of for the industry.
My digital skills and abilities consist of various CAD software’s that are used to transform an initial idea into a 3D creation, animation and visualisation. Whilst studying to become an Interior Architect, being literate in CAD skills is extremely important to me as this will enable me to become successful in the field; as well as promote my ideas to clients in the most realistic way possible prior to the completion of a project.
The use of social media is also as important; as it has enable me to share my up to date work with friends and other people who find my Facebook page interesting. I am aiming to expand my social media skills as I complete more projects that I’ll be confident to share with the world.
My strongest belief is you’ll never reach perfection because there’s always room for improvement. Yet get along the way to perfection, you’ll learn to get better; however, if I had to rate my confidence in digital skills at present, I’d rate myself at eighty out of one hundred.
The most useful skills in my design will be a CAD software and a social media communication platform. These two will allow me to illustrate the brief and develop the design idea to meet the requirements as well as share the development and receive feedback from viewers.
My intentions to further develop my digital skills are to communicate and coordinate my work clearly through the blog portal; which is also something new to me. Furthermore, I’d be attempting to illustrate a range of media including text, image, video and audio. Lastly, I’d like to continue researching and learning different tools in CAD software’s that will enable my confidence levels to increase.
Digital skills are extremely important in design as these are the tools that bring the designers imagination to life!
