During the entire week of TED 2014, Adobe hosted a Drawing Lab in Vancouver for attendees to encourage conversations about drawing and invite them to try their hands at our upcoming creative hardware: a cloud connected pen (Project Mighty) and a digital ruler (Project Napoleon) for the iPad. This creative hardware was conceived and designed by XD. We believe that drawing is a fundamental part of literacy and that everyone can draw. Throughout the week, countless drawings by attendees were broadcast live and shared across social media using #TEDdraw.
In keeping with the theme of TED “Ideas worth spreading,” we wanted to share our passion for creativity and the team’s exploration around the future of drawing and creativity with fellow TEDActive attendees.
Throughout the week, we enjoyed many fun conversations with fellow attendees about drawing and creativity. During the speaker sessions, I created caricatures of every TED speaker using Mighty, Napoleon and the companion app for iPad, Project Parallel.
