This workshop deals with how to work fast in a digital environment and create a sense of flow while using Photoshop and Solidworks. The main ideas here are to minimize unnecessary cursor movement and maximize muscle memory. Thanks to IDSA Kansas City Chapter as well as Wacom, Hallmark and Garmin for sponsoring this event. The above video has about 30minutes of theory at the beginning with more sketches through the last half.
