In this highly competitive environment, smartphone manufacturers are taking various creative initiatives to help them meet consumer’s demands. In such a move Taiwanese Tech company Asus today invited artists from around the globe to design for its custom Android Skin called as ZenUI for its very famous ZenFone series.
This is the same platform that was launched in April where the artists can submit their original designs to be used as themes on current Asus ZenFone smartphones and future Asus mobile devices.
These artworks can be shared for free, or as paid content through which the designer can earn revenue.
