DESIGNING FOR THE DESIGN

Besides Clay Modeling and Sculpture Arts, Garie Sim has many other creative interests: Architectural Design, Interior Design, Commercial Design, Display Arts, Cartooning, Collage, Computer Arts, and 3D Computer Animation. For the past twenty five years, as an interior designer, he has designed and built many residential and commercial properties. The design ideas created by Garie are all specifically design for his clients' requirements and wishes, the spatial design are to satisfy certain functional and aesthetic needs.


Garie's interior designs and projects have been featured in many
newspapers and magazines. He was the first to use the Flipbook concept to make the client understands 3D design. Flipbook is the cheapest way to create 3D walkthrough design. It can be converted into a 3D stereo Flipbook using basic stereo glasses. All his design concepts are based on the following principles: good proportion of space in relation to object in its environment; ergonomics, scale, harmony, and the balance of different visual forces between the various elements. By emphasizing design features, it creates good rhythm in designing, providing unity with the variety of elements, good visual aesthetic creates durability in design.


Garie has always realized that clear visualization of interior space and understanding of the proposed design concept by any client is very important. As long ago as 1988, he was already searching for a new way to present his design ideas. Computer was his choice for the design tool, the software as the design medium. In the late 80's the computer software was too elementary for serious professional designers. It took Garie four years to search for designing software and hardware. The Macintosh Computer system was an ideal choice as they were user friendly. Investing a few hundred thousand dollars in software and hardware in late 1993, it took Garie ten days to master many software programs through self motivation and study. This makes Garie the pioneer in 3D interactive computer walkthrough design in Singapore, as featured in
The Sunday Times June 1994.


Together with digital cameras and other artist software, Garie began his creating in virtual space. Since then he has created hundred of animations and library files. Self motivation and computer systems have made Garie an even better designer. Computerization doubles and triples the speed of the design process. The creation of 3D objects or situations is fun, and can make you feel you are a magician in virtual reality.


Garie is a bit of a visionary, as all designers must be. Take a look at his imaginary creations of
the future. Finally, after more than twenty years of playing with all kind of clays, Garie settled down creating all his miniatures in polymer clay. The clay was the reliable medium for his many hobbies during his free time. He created toys for his kids with polymer clay. With encouragements from his friends,Garie set up the play clay school, teaching young kid in Singapore to develop their fine motor skills, improve hand and eye coordination. Garie hope to cultivate and develop, young creative talents in the the local community. Creating more talents will bring about changes in perception and appreciating our local artists in the Singapore community.
