Apple’s iPad Pro gains new recognition after U.S. artist, Kyle Lambert, revealed the tablet was used to design the poster for Netflix’s current hit series “Stranger Things.” The artist chose the iPad while sketching the poster because of its natural draw capability, he stated during an interview with Mashable.
The Macbook Pro is also making the headlines as new rumors of a Touch ID power button on its future releases have been circulating on specialized websites.
The artist responsible for the creation of Netflix’s sci-fi web show poster made clear his preference for the Ipad Pro and the Apple Pencil during the composition and sketching of the piece.
“I CHOSE THE IPAD PRO FOR THE DRAWING STAGE OF THE POSTER BECAUSE I FIND THAT I AM ABLE TO SKETCH IN A VERY NATUAL WAY ON THE DEVICE USING THE APPLE PENCIL. THE DEVICE, IN GENERAL, IS NICE TO HOLD FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME; IT IS REALLY PORTABLE,” he said during the interview with Mashable.
Kyle Lambert’s drawing tools list includes MacBook, iPhone, and iPad
The poster design came as a challenge, with Netflix providing a vague plot outline, rough cuts from the first episodes, and still shots to communicate the story in a single image, the artist explained during the interview. “Stranger Things” has been praised by the media and its poster has become iconic to fans worldwide.
Kyle Lambert has been known for the use if iPads and Macbooks to create realistic visual pieces, and the tech corporation has been a client of the artist, according to a Bio on his official website.
