In this week’s question time I talk about whether I’d recommend designers to buy a Wacom graphics tablet; whether I’ve looked into 3D design applications like Maya or Blender; and how manage my clients, do I take on multiple clients at once or work on a first come first served basis?

<divclass="video"> </div>This week’s questions

  • Have you used a Wacom tablet? Do you recommend it?
  • Have you ever used the 3D tools in Illustrator or Photoshop for a project? Or tried out 3D software like Blender or Maya? Just curious if your design interests extend to those areas.
  • When you get client work in do you do first come first served basis or switch between clients on projects?
