As a production designer in the film industry I have been using SketchUp for over 12 years.

All of the imagery on this site I created using SketchUp.

I have used SketchUp on television shows such as Cashmere Mafia, Believe, Forever,

Saturday Night Live and hundreds of commercials including Google, Capital One and Garnier, Gatorade and Apple Computer!

I have also used SketchUp for architects, interior designers, decorators and home builders.

"Just wanted to reach out and thank you for the great class. I jumped right in and have already put together a number of proposals for clients this past week using the program. It's really helped step up my game with customers, my boss is stoked, and my guys in the shop are also happy to get much better and more accurate drawings before we put something into production (I make furniture). Your class was just the right amount of info to give me the confidence to start messing around on my own and dig a little deeper."
