How does the lighting designer communicate design – through words, drawings, and photographs. Words are the instruments that describe content, drawings communicate intent, and photographs capture the built environment. Join our panel as they discuss these three ways of communicating to convey design concepts and market yourself to prospective clients and employers, especially in our fast paced mobile society. Dwayne Waggoner will discuss the language of light and how its evolution is essential to the profession; Charles Thompson, IALD, a lighting designer and architect with 30 years of practice, will demonstrate lighting drawings from conceptual sketches to details; and Emad Hasan, Associate IALD, will discuss the importance of photography and its ability to evoke powerful emotions.
