Last year we braved the outsized damage that one of the most minute forms of life, a virus, unleashed; the world faced unprecedented wildfires and floods; and from our quarantine bubbles, watched the miracle of sourdough bloom or a backyard garden take root.
It’s from this emotional vantage point that HP asked seven talented designers, animators, and graphic artists — the Z by HP Global Ambassadors — to create something wholly original inspired by the natural world.
Their challenge: it had to be produced with Z by HP gear and it had to be truly collaborative, while they were all in their home studios far apart in New York, Portugal, the Netherlands, Colombia, and Idaho. The goal of the project was to see how creatives can collaborate from a distance with the Z by HP Ambassadors experimenting with new tools and techniques and pushing HP’s high-performance workstations and monitors to their limits.
“All these different types of artists come together to create a single project, it sounds so overwhelming because you’re just like, how are we going to make this work?” says Jody MacDonald (@jodymacdonaldphoto), an adventure and documentary photographer and Z Ambassador based in Sun Valley, Idaho.
