Our friends Inkygoodness team up with retailer Argos to present ‘My Tablet & Me’ - a series of editorial features designed to showcase the creative capabilities of tablets.
Inkygoodness have teamed up with 3 creative types (graphic designer Alex Fowkes, comic artist Kristyna Baczynski and illustrator Andrew Groves) and retailer Argos to test out the creative potential of 3 leading tablets. You’ll find more info about the project below.
Planning projects, organising meetings, sharing documents with clients, sketching and creating artwork, today’s creatives are expected to juggle multiple projects and tasks in any given day – regardless of their location.
So how can we manage our time efficiently whilst remaining productive on the move?
In conversation with graphic designer Alex Fowkes, comic artist Kristyna Baczynski and illustrator Andrew Groves we will explore the creative capabilities of three best selling tablets: Samsung Galaxy 3, Apple iPad and Google Nexus, and discover the multitude of uses they can offer to improve productivity and work flow.
Join us as we take you on a journey across the U.K exploring the work of three illustrators, each with their own distinctive style and unique approach to image-making.
Essential reading for professional designers and novices alike!
My Tablet & Me launched on November 27th, 2014 and runs until January 26th, 2015. A mini-documentary to accompany the project will be released online in early 2015.
