I’ve had the iPad Pro for for a couple months now, and I’ve been really enjoying the experience of having the large screen and the ability to draw so naturally and with such accuracy.
This week Adobe sent me down to Shoreditch Studios in London to come hang out, connect with other creatives and to hear about some of the new Creative Cloud Updates that are coming to the Adobe Creative Cloud. For full transparency; Adobe have sponsored this blog post and the highlights video on my YouTube Channel.
One of society’s biggest fear is failure. We’ve been brought up in a world where we’re supposed to see failure as bad and success as good. Do you ever feel like this? That you’re so frightened about what will happen if you fail? I used to feel the same way about lots of things in my life, until I changed my perspective.
In this post, I want your perception of failure to change. I want you to understand that failure isn’t something to be ashamed of; it shouldn’t be lid to your success.
A lot of us have been in the position where we don’t have work, where there are seemingly no clients that want to work with you. Obviously you can’t stay in this position for a long time, so what do you do during this time? Do you sit around and wait for the next potential client to email you, then with desperation you work under your rate of pay? Or do you do something else?
The Mars Lead Pointer is the equivalent of a pencil sharpener for the 2mm Clutch Pencil. There is already some sort of a sharpener on top of the clutch pencil, but using this lead pointer will give you the sharpest point possible. If you’re a hand lettering artist or logo designer, it’s so important to be able to have a sharp point on the pencil.
Where it all started: Hand lettering has been around for hundreds of years. If you’re from the UK you’ll definitely know that if you go into a small town that you’re going to see some pretty rad looking sign painting on top of old shops. I’ve lived in a town for all my 21 years of life and I still love it. The heritage is still in place without compromising relevant structures that need to be put into place. What I love about my town is the history of sign painting on shop banners. I always think to myself that if I lived two hundred years ago that I would be a sign painter instead of a designer.
We’re now in the age where we can learn anything we’ve learnt at school and college from the internet - basically for free or pennies. The internet is the largest source of information ever collected, comprising from thousands of services holding all our data. It often gets me thinking about how much the world in the future will know about us.
