Unlike other publishing services, INKR Creator Studio is totally self-served, leveraging technology to remove the human bottleneck usually associated with publishing.
Concepts & Ideation
In 2018, I worked on the conceptualization of a suite of sophisticated tools and services for digital art creators that catered for an end-to-end process of creating, collaborating, distributing, and monetizing digital content, as well as engaging with their readers. This is our solution for democratizing the global comic publishing industry, enabling just about anyone in the world, no matter how big or small, to get their comics to the hands of readers all around the world.
By leveraging on technology to streamline and enhance the comic publishing process, especially in the distribution area, comic creators can make use of our self-service portal to submit their titles and get them published, then earn money from it, instead of going through multiple rounds of vetting from publishers and relying on personal relationship.
I came up with the initial set of mockups based on these hypotheses, adopting Material Design in Sketch.
After some rounds of revisions and the adoption of the INKR brand, it was decided that this tool would be called INKR Creator Studio. A new set of mockups were proposed.
The project was put on hold as there were more urgent projects at the time. It would be resumed later in 2019 as INKR Backstage.
