Starting with an inspiration phase we would look for imagery online while we sketch and hash out rough ideas. After sketching, erasing, sweeping up eraser dust off our desks and repeating that a dozen times, we would draw iPhone or iPad sized screens on paper to eventually fill with promising candidates from our sketching session. After a couple iterations we usually share a version for a design review. […]
iPad Pro eliminates eraser dust and stacks of unnecessary paper sketches. Now we are able to copy and paste a sketch we’ve done, erase parts we don’t like and iterate on top of that. From there, we can simply Airdrop the sketch to our computers.
When the iPad Pro was announced, I couldn't wait to put my hands on it. I imagine it to be the ultimate workstation for User Experience Design, but once I played with it a bit, I couldn't see it fitting in my design workflow. This doesn't mean I'm not evaluating it's purchase, maybe I'm just getting older and moving out from my routine frightens me a bit.
I usually sketch on paper, however I see how the iPad Pro and Apple pencil fills the gab between analogue and Digital. Who knows, maybe one day I'll give it a try again.
iPad Pro 2? Where are you?
