Here at Crank, we dream of a universe full of awesome application GUIs. Where students - brimming with innovative ideas and bursting with creativity - aren't limited by lackluster software tools. We want all designers, regardless of where they are in their careers, to have the best tools possible to help them bring their ideas to life.
Students are often limited by software tools that are free or cheap.
Tuition, rent, tech gear, books, pizza, parties*...
We've been there. It wasn't THAT long ago that we were students. We know that at the end of the day there isn't much left in the budget to buy great GUI design software.
Crank Software Academic Program - Supporting Innovation in Creative GUI Design
That's why we are launching the Crank Software Academic Program and offering FREE Storyboard Suite licenses to students and teachers. We are committed to supporting students and their schools, to help build a future workforce of skilled embedded application designers. This means better career opportunities for students when they graduate, and a strong future for the embedded market.
Building Multi-market Applications with Storyboard Suite
From automotive to washing machines to mighty industrial machines, and more; Storyboard Suite makes embedded design and development faster and easier.
Working on a really cool GUI for an automotive infotainment system? Other students have used Storyboard Suite to create an award-winning infotainment system. Check out the EcoCar2 from Mississippi State University.
Build awesome things and tell us about it. We love seeing HMI designs that change how we interact with our world.
Participating in the program is pretty simple.
Check out the Academic Program webpage for more information.
*Crank Software does not endorse "parties", but we definitely support your quest for good pizza.
