Wacom team members (employees) are driven by strong individual motivations and passion and work on projects outside the scope of their work. Their thoughts and projects provide hints to explore the potential for Wacom's vision of "Lifelong Ink" and they spur on our Social Initiatives. Wacom values the thoughts of its team members, and it offers programs that support individual projects.
Yoana Simeonova, is as a software designer at an office in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Yoana is also one of the team members using this support program. Through conversations with her son, she came up with the idea of making children's IT classes more fun and creative. Her project introduced 8 Wacom Intuos in classes, making children smile.
I got the idea through conversations with my son, who is in the 2nd grade. He got very interested in new IT technologies and tools while taking IT classes at school, which is why I suggested to the principal and the other teachers at his school that Wacom's pen tablets be introduced as a new educational tool. In December 2018, 8 Wacom Intuos S were introduced at my son's school through the company's program that supports individual projects. My colleagues Antony Jekov, Dobromir Balabanov, and Daniel Schongen helped setup the pen tablets and install drivers. The app "Bamboo Paper," which we had developed, was also introduced at the same time so that the children could immediately start drawing with Wacom Intuos.
