Hands-Free Design

Michigan Creative Blogging

Having had a graphics tablet for over two years, I’m not unfamiliar with people walking up to me in public and being in awe of my “advanced technology.” After having it so long, however, illustrating and designing on a tablet has become second nature and not that phenomenal to me. That being said, it does feel kind of cool to have strangers ask me what I’m doing.

So in a way, I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised by this video, which shows another designer just doing what she does. But I still am. How and why did she start doing hands-free design?

Michelle Vandy, the subject of the video, stated that she got repetitive strain injuries in both arms and only began designing with her nose out of necessity—and necessity is the mother of invention.

Maybe nose design is in our futures, too!
