Getting creative with technology

We often ask respondents to personify brands, as well as asking them to create collages and other artwork from scratch, so I am always on the lookout for apps that foster creativity.

Flowpaper is free and allows users to create beautiful flowing artwork with their fingertip, either with a blank canvas, or by overlaying art on top of photos the user has uploaded to the app.

MocaDeco — Visual Creator is another, containing such design elements as symbols, shapes, lines, plus detailed illustrations.

The results from both apps are amazing, creating professional looking pieces with minimal skill required, just the willingness of a user to express themselves.
