Taras Makar from Ukrainian Young Book Design Awards and Acer Ukraine on Art and Technology

Launched in 2019 by Osnovy Publishing and L/Y Studio (ex Hooga.design), Ukrainian Young Book Design Awards is more than just a design contest. We believe that it serves as a venue that allows young professionals to showcase their talents to the world and in itself is a major boon to the development of the book designer community overall.

In 2020 we received almost 400 entries from young designers of Ukraine, Germany, Lithuania, Italy, Austria, Portugal, and many other countries; with the shortlist of the best 20 announced back in August.


Today art is impossible without technology and we felt that notion truly realized in the entries we received where young professionals took full advantage of its benefits to fulfill their most daring ideas. And we thought, Why not turn our attention to the technology and its influence on creative industries professionals? A right tech is a powerful tool for development. It enables artists to just be artists and not to constantly concern themselves with how to implement their ideas.


Acer and their new ConceptD laptop lineup fully support this idea and that is why we created videos on the close relationship between art and technology together. One of our protagonists is Taras Makar, a motion designer.



Taras tells about how his love for visualizing the boldest thoughts and ideas, experimenting with shapes, colors, infusing regular things with new meanings. Projects with 3D-animation require great attention to detail and much ‘horsepower’, thus making them impossible to achieve without a suitable device. It is important for such a gadget to help with complex tasks and not restrict you with its limited functionality. Watch a video with Taras talking about his experience in detail:



Acer ConceptD 5 Pro has been created with creative industries professionals in mind. The laptop capable of completing 3D projects comfortably and swiftly thanks to 9th-gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 3000 graphics chipset. 32 gigabytes of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TB NVMe PCIe SSD, which works in RAID 0, will ensure the responsiveness as well as store your project data reliably.


The quality of the display and its color-accuracy are critical in motion design. Available in either 15” or 17” variants ConceptD 5 Pro has you covered: the 4K PANTONE®-certified display is capable of a professional 100% range of Adobe® RGB color gamut and Delta E <2 color-accuracy.


This laptop is designed for everyday use and, despite the durable aluminum chassis, weighs only 2.9 kg for 17” model, and 2.5 kg for 15” model. Deep black finish and minimalistic design complete its stylish look perfectly.


Backlit keyboard with a non-intrusive, warm amber light is yet another feature designed for productivity; multiple connectivity options, hyperfast Killer™ Wi-Fi® 6, as well as additional HDMI®2.0 ports for external high-resolution displays are also included.



For motion-designers, as also is the case with architects and artists, the silence of your laptop is of great importance, as well as its capacity to stay cool and its battery to store many hours of usage. Aeroblade™ 3D patented fans maintain all of the internals cool and the noise below 40 dB while under maximum load. This, by the way, corresponds to the levels of noise at a typical library.



Technology not only helps to bring the most courageous ideas to life but also to do so in the utmost comfort. We found that for ourselves while working with Acer and too can confidently say: “Let Creators be Creators,” and innovations will take care of everything else.
