Communicating Design Concepts Quickly Most of us are landscape designers and contractors, not artists. We need to be able to communicate our ideas quickly to a client & move on with what we do best, installing & maintaining beautiful landscapes. This clinic will teach you the fundamentals of creating a 3D sketch that will excite your client and shorten sales time. This is the ideal way to show how portions of a larger project will look or to sell small enhancement projects when a traditional landscape plan isn’t necessary.
Learn how to test ideas with a client on the first appointment to avoid producing design plans & concepts they don’t like, or want.
Gain confidence by having another sales tool available in thier ‘sales toolbox.’
Learn to not be afraid of hand rendering. (You’ll be done by the time others turn their computer on.)
Learn the essentials of quick rendering & what tricks to use when time is short and stress is high.
Learn how line weight, color and perspective come together to give your rendering believability.
Be able to create client enthusiasm that will give your company a competitive edge.
