Los Angeles, CA, November 20, 2008 – Bunkspeed, developer of the world’s fastest 3D rendering technology for design, engineering, and marketing, today announced that Detroit’s College for Creative Studies (CCS) has made Bunkspeed applications a main part of its industrial and automotive design instruction.
After an extensive evaluation, CCS has adopted the real-time rendering product HyperShot and the automotive visualization package HyperDrive as new digital tools in its progressive design curriculum. The level of realism delivered by these applications enable students to better communicate their concepts and ideas while integrating with CCS’ primary design software. In the past, a person’s ability to render their digital models was directly related to their expertise in the modeling software; now the quality of images is fully dependent on the creativity of the user, not their technical expertise.
CCS is a recognized leader in art and design education that prepares students to enter the new global economy. The College, located in America’s automotive capitol, offers Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in 11 majors including advertising design, graphic design, interior design, product design, and transportation design. Beginning in Fall 2009, CCS will award the Master of Fine Arts degree in Design and in Transportation Design.
“Because CCS launches so many careers into industrial design, I believe the introduction of Bunkspeed’s software will have enormous benefits in the studio environment,” says Michael Check, President of Bunkspeed’s Automotive and Transportation Division. “HyperDrive and HyperShot can take students a step further in visualization. All CCS students will benefit from our technology, as they will now be able to interact with their 3D digital models faster and present better quality imagery.
Schools with a dedicated program for design can qualify for Bunkspeed’s Render Tem Speechless Academic Program. For more information of eligibility, please visit: www.bunkspeed.com/education .
