It’s 2014 and the end of the first week of Fish Tank Creative reopening since our break over the Christmas period.
We felt we needed something to make us smile and this Twitter page did the job nicely
Thank you @FacesPics
Here at Fish Tank Creative we’re always trying to promote sustainability and do as much as we can to work in an eco friendly manner. We’re proud to be able to say that for the second year running we’ve completed branding work for the MarketPlace Leichhardt Annual Enviro Expo.
The event started on Monday and runs until Wednesday, 2nd of October. There are loads of free events happening aimed at both adults and kids, so everyone can find something that they’re interested in. The link above will take you to the full event program on the MarketPlace Leichhardt website.
Fish Tank Creative worked across a large range of collateral for this event, including press ads in both the Inner West Courier and Ciao! magazine, program flyers, web banners for Facebook and the MarketPlace Leichhardt website, a digital brochure, large posters and banners to be hung in the centre, and delivering a new wall triptych. Throughout this range of work we have kept a strong application of the brand as well as helping to promote the message of sustainability.
So if you’re looking for something to do in the Leichhardt area over the coming week get along to MarketPlace Leichhardt, check out the diverse range of free events and enjoy the lovely branding work that runs throughout the event. Other examples of Fish Tank Creative’s work for MarketPlace Leichhardt can be found on our website here.
Here at Fish Tank Creative we’re very excited about the announcement from Wacom for their new stand alone tablets and pressure sensitive stylus for iPad.
The Intuos Creative Stylus for iPad is looking very handy. At an affordable price and offering 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity via Bluetooth, it seems like a great accessory for the iPad. Whilst there are already many stylus pens available for iPads, the ability to have pressure sensitivity when using sketching programs makes this stylus a very appealing choice for anyone working within a creative field.
Wacom is releasing two stand alone 13″ tablets. Both will feature full HD displays with touch control, front and rear cameras, Wi-Fi and ship with the Wacom Pro Pen, giving you 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The Companion runs Windows 8 and comes in two versions. The standard version gives you 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, whilst the Pro version comes with 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The companion is definitely aimed at professional artists and allows for the installation of Adobe Creative Suite programs like Photoshop and Illustrator.
The Companion Hybrid works off Android and functions as a Cintiq tablet when connected to a computer or as an Android tablet when unplugged. It’s still got some fairly impressive technology inside it, running on Android 4.2 and housing an Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU. It comes in both 16GB and 32GB versions.
All three of these would be versatile tools for Fish Tank Creative. Having a tablet with high level sketching functionality would allow us to speed up the creative process when formulating concepts for our clients. It would also open up our ability to edit on the fly, making meetings more dynamic and intuitive. Being able to do some personal sketching whilst hanging out during lunch breaks in the parks and cafes of Chippendale wouldn’t go amiss either.
We’ll definitely be looking into the creative and productive possibilities that these three devices can provide when they release in the next few months.
It’s a boy!
