Hardware — Stuff used for graphic design, web development, and multimedia

I often won­der what oth­ers are uti­liz­ing to cre­ate their works in the way of hard­ware. Soft­ware is pretty much the same across the board i think for most in the way of basic graphic design. I mean, for page lay­out there is Inde­sign and Quark, right? I mean, why would any­one use any­thing else? I there any­thing else? Back to the point, hard­ware. I like to start some projects off with a pen­cil and paper. Usu­ally tak­ing notes about the pur­pose of the project I am about to under­take and then to make sketches – quick wire­frames or what not.

Here is my list of Hard­ware devices:

About the author

 Hardware   Stuff used for graphic design, web development, and multimedia I’ve started design­ing web­sites while at Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton dur­ing my first Pho­to­shop 3.1 expe­ri­ence in 1996 on a Mac­in­tosh com­puter. I built my own com­put­ers (Win­dows PCs) with the help of a friend and have been dig­i­tally involved ever since. I am both Win­dows and PC lit­er­ate but grav­i­tate toward OSX. I’ve grad­u­ally got­ten back to my roots as a tac­tile artist / designer by work­ing more with tra­di­tional medi­ums like draw­ing, paint­ing, and mixed media.
