State of the Art

20th April 2012

Our esteemed Creative Director Nigel Gray is definitely of the old school. Put more fairly he’s uncomfortable with technology. He’s not the only one of course, it takes a particular kind of person to actually enjoy working with computers and that delight doesn’t always exist in the creative brain. So how does the classically trained Creative Director work with the modern studio? The answer is seemingly so simple, you get him a brush. Well, not just any brush, a beautifully styled Nomad capacitive brush for the iPad. Combined with a clever paint app he’s able to sketch on the go and email his sketches direct to the studio. No paper sketchbooks, scanning, file storage and retrieval, just emailed direct from the app.

Here are a few sketches Nigel has created (and emailed back) from this weekends Bahrain Grand Prix.
