It is a wonderful experience to be a part of the creative team which has just published the March issue of Sketchup ur Space. This crisp flash book contains lots of interesting feature on SketchUp. In its 7th edition, sketchup ur Space not only has increased its volume but also the quality input for betterment in service. You can check this magazine at: http://www.sketchup4architect.com/magazine.htm. If you are a die heart SketchUp fan, you will definitely enjoy reading Sketchup ur Space.
From the followers since the first season of the Sketchup ur Space know that the first edition has only 14 pages in it. And this March issue has 72 pages. Not bad? As a member of the creative team of Sketchup ur Sapce I know that it is not an easy task to do. I am here sharing some of the experience on the magazine. First of all, let’s start with the content of the SketchUp magazine.
As the time flows, Sketchup ur Space is also not also standing still. It has motion which takes it form as SketchUp animation in this issue. The cover story of the March issue deals with SketchUp animation. Eminent SketchUp up artists, landscape artist and plug in developers like Eike Theile, Hussain Fadlallah, Luca Dal Motini and Hendy Hermawan enriches the gust column section with some nice articles on SketchUp. A detailed description about London 3D Project surely helps the SketchUp admirers of all over the world to know about the ongoing project. A blog on how SketchUp is useful in the making of block buster sci-fi movie Avatar dig out many unknown information. Jim Leggitt’s Blog will be surely proved as a master piece like previous. The news room contains lots of news which helps the readers to keep themselves updated. And the penultimate topic of the magazine is tips to do animation in SketchUp on your own. Along with these, Feedback and magazine details complete the contents of the Sketchup ur Space.
The designing part of the magazine is no less than the content part. We keep in mind the St Patrick day and our designing team did a perfect job. We respect the tradition of our Irish friends and try to reflect it on our cover page. The clean and clear design of the magazine helps the reader to get the text easily. It is a really a great feeling to be the part of this magazine since its birth time. Hope that it will flourish more in the future.
