Hundreds take on the Microsoft Surface creative challenge: in pictures

Microsoft set technology fans a challenge to be creative at a major London event.

Hundreds of people were given the chance to show off their design skills using the Surface Studio and Surface Book at the Glug Cannt Summer Party.

The event, held in East London, featured 50 agencies, brands and studios, who shared ideas on being creative.

The Surface Studio is an all-in-one PC designed for creatives and professionals. It can transform from a workstation into a digital canvas, allowing people to use Surface Pen or touch to write and draw on the thinnest LCD monitor ever built.

The Surface Book is built for extreme performance, giving users very fast access to programs, videos and music. The keyboard can be detached, giving you the option of using the device as a laptop or tablet.
