Artful décor, creative design, elegant graphics, hand-crafted art – these and other art genres are all exploding these days. There’s a clear demand from the public for unique, hand-made items or artful services provided by skilled craftsmen and women. In fact, according to Statista, the arts and crafts industry earned a whopping 43 billion dollars worldwide last year, and that figure is expected to hike up to 50 billion by 2024.
If you’re like many artists, you might be wondering about ways you can save time, make money or drum up awareness about your artful endeavors. This is where Apple technology comes to the rescue.
While no type of tech can replace you as an artist, it can certainly help you streamline your artful endeavors, and Apple is uniquely equipped to help you triumph in the art scene. Here are a few ways Apple technology can revolutionize your journey as an artist or designer.
Paint and Draw With More Finesse
If you draw or paint, you might be most comfortable with canvas or paper. However, with the iPad Pro 5th Generation tablet, you can refine your hand-hewn masterpieces with cutting-edge technology. With its 12.9 inch screen, you have plenty of surface area to render your artistic vision.
The tablet comes with an Apple pencil which, believe it or not, mimics traditional pens, pencils or brushes with remarkable accuracy. Combined with the best Apple Pencil apps, you can make stunning enhancements; apply special effects, switch brush styles and so much more. Furthermore, this iPad has Apple’s lightning-fast M1 processor as well as a high-contrast display which allows you to manifest striking digital graphics.
Easy Interface With Photography and Crafting Technology
As an artist and designer, you’re only as good as the tools you use. Therefore, you’ll be amazed at how the MacBook Pro is the perfect kind of tech that helps with your art. The screen resolution is vastly rich, rendering eye-popping colors. It’s also extremely powerful with an M1 processor and allows you to sail through your design projects quickly and seamlessly with a glitch-free user experience.
If you use a die-cut machine for crafting such as a Cricut, the MacBook Pro is the perfect companion. It’s powerful enough to handle die-cut machine software and the interface between this Mac and crafting design software is impressively smooth. You can also easily and affordably use this Mac for other projects with the help of money-saving apps for graphic artists.
Furthermore, if photography is your preferred medium, the MacBook works like a dream with top-notch, high-resolution laser printers. This means you can easily enhance, boost contrast or make edits to your photos and print them out effortlessly thanks to Apple technology. Lastly, you’ll be creating new craft designs into the wee hours because the newest MacBook Pro can run up to 17 hours on one charge.
Improve Sales and Increase Production
There are several Apple products that can help you produce more of your art and make selling your creations simpler. This is especially crucial if you are selling your art online or in shows. Many artists struggle with production. It’s a time-consuming process because most pieces are typically one-of-a-kind.
With a powerful iPad or MacBook, you can not only envision, design and store your creations, you can also produce your creations by connecting your Apple tech with a 3D printer. Using 3D printing software, you can send your files to the 3D printer and create amazing physical products such as artful silicone wristbands, ornate wooden mosaics or eye-catching wall hangings. Using a 3D printer and Apple tech could be a huge game-changer in terms of bringing your art in physical form to the marketplace as well as increasing sales of your unique designs.
Staying Organized, Focused, and Connected
As an artist, your work and creativity doesn’t stop in the studio. Between promoting, selling, marketing and sharing your art with others – you need the best, user-friendly tools in order to stay organized and on track. Fortunately, you can make your Mac and iPhone work seamlessly together in order to manage contacts, post on social networks, keep your schedule current, update your website and so much more.
From conception to production, it should be clear that Apple is a smart choice to improve your artistry and help you with your artistic projects. After all, there is a reason Apple has won the hearts of dreamers, artists and creatives alike for over 40 years. It’s because Apple tech is synonymous with elegant design and ease of use, making their suite of technological wonders beloved tools in creative tool boxes all over the world.
