Richard Best is a furniture designer and builder in British Columbia who works mainly in the traditional “craftsman” period.
Working with Richard allowed me to utilize my graphic design skills to make a project easier to complete. In this case I used SolidWorks, a 3D CAD program to make a virtual model of the chair. From this model drawings were printed as cutting patterns and renderings were created to show the chair with different finishes.
In addition to being the blueprints for the final design, the process of building the virtual model allowed for problem solving without the need to waste expensive material.
