It’s easy to get lost in the chaos that is Black Friday. Last year $67.6bn was spent on Black Friday in the United States, and according to Business Reporter, the UK forked out a whopping £3.3 billion over the weekend as well.
That’s a lot of cash – and a lot of deals to be had. But what about for designers and illustrators? It’s easy to find bargains on clothing or a 4k TV, but where are the best deals on graphics tablets and other creative resources?
