Contest Brief

Launch Photoshop. Open a new file with background white. Use a simple brush stroke that will change size (Shape Dynamics Size) as more or less pressure is applied to the pen (or speed to the mouse). Draw a few simple lines, change the color (in a Full Page Transition Effect - see example) and draw another few lines. That's it. Try to show 3-5 different colors in the video.

Don't try to draw complex figures. The video demonstrates an app screen showing a very simple yet stylish drawing app.

Just a plain white video with a pen draws from thick to thin based on your movement.

I will use the ready made video to play it in a loop as a demonstration on a web page.

Here is an example to show how the app works: [login to view URL]

You definitely need to make sure to use Shape Dynamics (Size): [login to view URL]

Please use at least three or more of the following colors (and the corresponding Transitions): [login to view URL]


Please try to avoid to much whitespace, should be read as: Draw all over the white screen and the colors be allowed to overlap each other.


Everything is open. I am still keen to see more proposals. User "simpleform" did a good job so far, I really liked the design approach here...

Good luck and may the creativity be with you. :-)
