Layer Tennis The Basics

What’s All This Then?

Layer Tennis is a series of live design events on Friday afternoons presented by Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.

Two competitors swap a file back and forth in real-time, adding to and embellishing the work. Each artist gets fifteen minutes to complete a "volley" and then we post that to the site live.

The players may be designers, animators, illustrators or pretty much anything else, and they can use any tool or application they like. The match progresses volley by volley.

A third participant, a writer, provides play-by-play commentary on the action as it happens.

The match lasts for ten volleys and when it's complete, opinioned Season Ticket Holders sound off and we declare a winner. Check Tennis HQ get lost in the archive of past matches.

So What Else Is New?

Aside from our featured match, each week we'll also be hosting live qualifying matches. These will allow a larger number of artists and designers to participate and maybe even play their way into the season-ending tournament. If you think you have the chops and would like to play, you'll need to be a Season Ticket Holder, then send us a link to your work, or play a practice game with a friend and send us the results. We're also accepting nominations. Just let us know by writing to layertennis at coudal dot com.
