PROFIL

You need a 2 or 3-year higher education qualification:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you need to know how to draw to take the competition?

Candidates are not expected to have a high level of drawing ability, but rather to be able to express an idea/solution visually.

Is it possible to take several design competitions?

It is possible to take several design competitions, provided that the specialisations are different: products, transport, UX or 3D modelling.

Can I take the same competition more than once?

Candidates who fail the competitive entrance examination may retake it the following year.

What are the conditions for a refund?

You have a legal period of 14 days from the date of your payment to change your mind about your purchase (competition entry, holiday, etc.). To exercise your right of withdrawal, please contact RUBIKA at contact@rubika-edu.com.

SHOULD I BRING MY OWN EQUIPMENT?

Candidates must bring their own drawing materials. Paper is provided by the school for the various tests (if the competition is held in person).

Are there any competition annals?

Unfortunately, RUBIKA doesn’t offer any competitive exam annals. However, here is a selection of books that will help you progress:

  • Raymond Loewy – La laideur se vend mal
  • Raymond Guidot – Histoire du design de 1940 à nos jours
  • Peter Fiell – Design du XXème siècle
  • Scott Robertson – How to draw sketches and environments
  • Scott Robertson, Thomas Bertling – How to render
  • HPoint – Design Studio Press
  • Editions Taschen – DesignStudioPress

You are also welcome to visit these websites:

What are the expectations for the portfolio?

There are no particular formal requirements for the portfolio, but the quality of the work submitted is expected to be of the highest standard: observation drawings, perspectives, models, sketchbooks, digital productions, usage scenarios, etc. The idea is to show your creativity and your ability to express an idea.

In the case of very rich content, it is advisable to make a pre-selection to be sure to show the work most representative of the level already acquired. The rest of the work will be made available to the examiner, who will be able to consult it during the discussion.

What advice do you have to help me prepare?

➔ Draw every day: you can easily produce one drawing a day … Creative or observational, it doesn’t matter but draw!
➔ Educate yourself: a good designer is already a curious designer! This will feed your imagination and creativity!
➔ Find out about the professions and techniques associated with the course you want to take!
