Wacom for design

Apparel, fashion, product, and toys lead the way

What do the latest fashion, sporty cars, and clever toys all have in common? Mostly like, these were all designed by creative professionals on a Cintiq creative pen display or an Intuos Pro creative pen tablet.

Innovation starts here

You may wonder why so many art and design schools are teaching the design disciplines using the latest gear from Wacom. You'll find labs full of beautiful, large-format Cintiq pen displays. Students are also working on the latest Intuos Pro pen tablets.

The reason? These schools are, of course, teaching timeless design principles, while encouraging innovation and the development of personal style. But these schools are also instilling an aptitude for technology. And they are graduating students who work faster, collaborate better, and create exceptional work. And here's where Wacom plays.

Technology informs design

Wacom sits at the front end of the design process and can inform so much about a designer's output. Because initial design is all about 2D concepting and the creative execution of the designer.

Wacom's professional products are already integrated into all the software applications most used by designers. With a creative pen display or creative pen tablet, these software apps become fully optimized for Wacom's pressure-sensitive pen.

The comfort, the ergonomics of holding Wacom's Grip Pen or Pro Pen, and the sensation of drawing directly on the screen of a Cintiq deliver the feeling of working with paper media, but with all the benefits of digital. Fluid, clean lines. Subtle nuances in the details. Variations in color depth. All with the ability to work in layers, in non-destructive formats, making changes quick and easy.

Enabling the 3D workflow

As the design process moves to 3D, many creatives prefer to use the pen for its natural control and comfort in working with popular 3D applications. You'll gain the ability to combine 2D and 3D. Model what is easy to model, while you draw what's easy to draw, such as complex curves and geometry, painting in patterns, texture, material, part breaks, and colors.

When it comes time to present the final product in architecture or apparel designs, nothing beats the creative power of Wacom products to add all of the details--like environments, architectural landscapes, people, and lifestyle imagery--to win your clients over and make your designs a success.

Wacom professional products and your talent are the foundations upon which award-winning design, fashion, and architecture are built.

Multi-touch makes design an immersive art form

Significant software advances from Autodesk, Corel®, Toon Boom™, and, more recently, Adobe®, have delivered on the advantages of the Wacom multi-touch interface as an integrated component of the pen display. Now, you can work more fluidly, using the creative attributes of the pen in one hand while you zoom, pan, or rotate your canvas with the other. You'll feel totally immersed in your work! Combined with on-screen shorts and our patented ExpressView, you'll also enjoy greater productivity.

Design matters. Productivity matters, too.

The design. Your ideas. Your talent to visualize and create. These things make all the difference. Combine your talents with tools from Wacom. Make it easier on yourself to execute in a natural, intuitive style. And enjoy the time-saving productivity tools in the Cintiq creative pen display, like shortcuts programmed into the ExpressKeys™, touch strips, radial menus, and pen side switches, all of which add up to improved productivity and performance.

Art and design schools introduce their students to Wacom gear early in the learning process for this very reason. Take full advantage of the tools at your disposal.
