I did a lot of presentations at the Kitchen & Bath Industry show this year. The presentations that I did were at Kraftmaid's Knowledge center. Kraftmaid is doing a great job at being a leader in technology for design, and that's what a lot of my presentations were about.
If you follow this blog, you may know about my exploits with various bits of technology, in particular, my new iPad. I got the iPad about six months ago, despite my newfound Android addiction. Since getting the iPad, I have slotted it into my workflow rather nicely. In this digital age, I see no reason that we can't go completely paperless. In part for saving the trees, but also because its so damn convenient to not have to deal with paper.
In my presentations for the iPad I talked about a slew of apps that can make your life so much easier as a designer. One that I really love and use just about every day is called Adobe Ideas. This app is a simple, robust drawing app built by the company that made "Photoshop" a verb. Despite the rather nasty spat Apple had with adobe this past year, Adobe Ideas rocks on the iPad! In the video below you will see how I use this app for taking field measurements, meeting notes, and I even draw ON a picture!
As the KBIS coverage continues throughout the coming weeks, stay tuned for more apps! In the meantime, go get this app and let me know in the comments how it works for you!
