This Online Lighting Design Course will introduce you to the fundamentals of successful Lighting Design...
Lighting design is ordinarily a highly technical and specialised subject, combining electrical knowledge and engineering with design skills. The Design Ecademy’s Online Lighting Design Course is the only accredited course of its kind to teach the fundamentals of lighting design without unnecessary technical and theoretical jargon. If you want to design lighting schemes successfully then this online lighting design course will teach you how to identify, recreate and then manipulate the effects of lighting in a positive manner so that you can repeatedly design lighting schemes successfully.
Until relatively recently, lighting was viewed as a mere necessity; something we need to see by. While this is still true, it is now widely understood that the quality of lighting makes a big impact in how much we enjoy our environment. It has also been proven to affect our health and safety, impact our mood and even influence the way we behave within certain spaces. But if lighting makes such a big difference then why don’t people use it more effectively…? The main reason is that a lighting scheme should be envisioned, designed and implemented during the earliest phases of building design because fitting wiring retrospectively is disruptive and costly in more ways than one. This is the challenge and the role of the lighting designer!
Good lighting designers are problem solvers; determining where light is needed and designing solutions with economy and creative flair. If you love diversity and enjoy the technical side of design then this might be just what you’re looking for.
