Our environment affects so many aspects of our day-to-day life. For designers, overall productivity and the creative process can be heavily swayed by their workstation. Similar to painters of the past, who needed a brush and canvas to create their masterpieces, designers in the digital age need the right tools to bring their visions to life. A quick glance at any designers desk and you’ll find similar tools: a mouse instead of a brush, the computer and external storage, and the center of it all – the monitor. The right monitor, much like a good sketchbook for a painter, is a critical part of any designers environment, improving the productivity and accuracy of their workflow.
No stranger to the needs of digital creatives, LG introduced the world’s first 21:9 ratio monitor. Now, LG is upping their game, introducing a brand new larger 21:9 monitor with a 38” screen that reflects the needs of today’s digital designer. To celebrate, LG is hosting a creative competition to giveaway the perfect designer workstation worth $10,000. Not bad, right?
