If you’re an artist or designer, creating the ultimate creative workspace will allow you to work with complete freedom, and express your creativity in new and exciting ways.
There are many things to consider when building a creative workspace, and the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo can take the complexity out of it by offering an all-in-one creative workspace that you can use in your home, studio or even out on the road.
But what are the kind of things you need for the creative workspace of your dreams? Let us explore the essentials, and how the Asus ZebBook Pro Duo can make that dream a reality.
Are you sitting comfortably?
One of the most important things to consider when putting together the ultimate creative workspace is your own comfort – both physically and mentally. Anyone who has had to work in cramped, uncomfortable, and downright messy environments will know that it’s incredibly difficult to find your creative muse.
By setting up your workspace so that you’re comfortable, you’ll be able to concentrate on your creative work. This means finding a nice, quiet and clean place that you can set up in. Investing in ergonomic chairs, mice and keyboards will help you work comfortably, and will prevent the dangers of RSI.
A workspace that’s free from clutter and distractions can help you get into a creative frame of mind as well. Keeping your desk clean is a great (and free) way to boost your creative workspace, but that doesn’t mean you have to work in a sterile environment. Good lighting, a nice view and even a pot plant can help brighten up a workspace in moments.
The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo can do all of this thanks to its portable design. As a laptop, it can be easily set up pretty much anywhere you like, and as the keyboard, screen and components are all built-in together, it means there’s no need for trailing wires all over your desk either.
Best of all, as a laptop, it means you’re not tied to a desk. If you want to move somewhere else for inspiration, just pick up the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo and go.
When it comes to creating digital art, you need a computer that can keep up with your imagination. Many creative applications can be pretty demanding when it comes to hardware – especially when it involves editing ultra high resolution video or rendering complex 3D scenes – so you want a device that offers enough power to let you get on with the job of creating – rather than sitting around and twiddling your thumbs.
A fast PC that can complete tasks in seconds doesn’t just mean you can concentrate on the fun creative stuff – it means you can speed up your whole workflow. This means hitting deadlines with ease, and being able to take on more clients as well – which is essential for any creative professional.
So, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is the ideal addition to any creative workspace. It comes with a high-end 8-core 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 processor, and can be configured with up to 32GB of RAM.
It also packs the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics cards, which allows the ZenBook Pro Duo to handle graphically-intensive tasks with ease. Digital artists can also use advanced ray-tracing lighting effects thanks to the GPU, bringing a level of realism to their work that was once impossible.
Many artists will tell you that the bigger the canvas, the better. And that doesn’t just mean physical canvases either – if you’re a digital creative, this means the apps you use to create your art as well.
By being able to work on large spaces, either physically or virtually, you’ll have a lot more scope for your art – and it’ll be a lot more comfortable to work on as well.
So, for the ultimate workspace, you’ll want the biggest canvas you can have. For many, this means getting a large, high-resolution, monitor – or even better, two.
Having more desktop real estate means you can work with ease, having multiple apps and windows open at once. You’ll be amazed at how a bit of extra space can transform your creative workflow.
The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is the perfect laptop for this. Its unique design means as well as having a large, 4K, OLED screen – which is a beautiful canvas to work on in its own right – it also comes with a second 14-inch 4K touch display, known as the Screenpad Plus, that sits above the keyboard.
You can use this second screen to display extra apps, windows and toolboxes, freeing up the main screen so you have even more space to work with.
The right tools for the job
No creative workspace is complete without all the tools you need to work with. This means making sure you have peripherals, from mice and keyboards to styluses and drawing tablets, to create and edit your art with.
For photographers, having a memory card reader is essential for getting your photos onto your PC for editing.
You’ll also want the very best screen you can afford, preferably one that’s professionally calibrated, so that you can view and edit your work as accurately as possible. For sound engineers and musicians, audiophile-grade speakers are a must as well.
The Asus ZenBook Duo combines all of these, turning it into a veritable Swiss Army Knife of laptops. You get that 15.6-inch 4K OLED display which supports 100% DCI-P3 colour space, as well as sRGB. It can handle HDR (High Dynamic Range) content for mind-blowingly vibrant images, and it’s Pantone validated as well.
It also features Harmon Kardon-certified speakers with smart amplifier technology that lets you whack up the volume without the sounds distorting.
It also packs in a huge range of ports that allows you to plug in basically any peripheral you need into it – as well as a built-in micro SD card.
Oh, and that Screenpad Plus? It can be used with a stylus as a drawing surface as well.
So, when looking to build the ultimate creative workspace, don’t think that you need to buy loads of new equipment. All you need is one: the Asus ZenBook Duo (opens in new tab).
