Manipulating perspective is an effective way to add three-dimensionality to a two-dimensional illustration. One discipline that takes special advantage of this is architecture, in which the isometric perspective is used to represent buildings to scale in two-dimensional drawing without having to resort to 3D software.

In this course you will learn to illustrate in an isometric perspective and then to encourage your creations by the hand of Jorge Tortosa - cofounder, creative director and motion designer of the MODIK study - who will teach you how to create the digital campaign of an international congress on smart cities using 2D illustration and animation.
