How my iPad fits into my workflow. (Post your in the comments!)
So I recently started doing graphic design work again as I was very tired of regular work type stuff like serving. My current set up is a MacBook Air, an iMac, and an 11” iPad Pro.
Since this is a subreddit dedicated to iPads, I think its only right to start with the iPad. This goes with me to client meetings. I take all of my notes on it and am able to quickly mock up concepts for my customers with my Apple Pencil in ProCreate. I also use it to write up invoices, do email triage, consume music and video as I’m working and browse reddit and twitter when I’m out and about, or in bed.
This is where most of the work gets done. I create most of my client work on this, and pull up the notes and sketches from my client meetings on it in a large preview. I also sometimes use this for email triage. Every once in awhile ill turn it and use it as a makeshift TV because my desk is right next to my bed.
As many people will most likely say “a MacBook Air has a terrible screen! What can you get done on that?” Well, I take this as my road machine, or to final client meeting when they want to see what’s going on on a computer. I chose the Air over the Pro because it has more than enough performance for what I’m doing, and the poorer display quality allows me to work far longer because the battery isn’t pushing so many pixels.
I love the way things work right now, But I am really hopeful that with iPadOS will be able to get more work done on my iPad Pro because it is so powerful and portable. But until September, and until I can see truly what it can do, this is how I’ll be working.
