In today’s digitally connected world, Shavone Charles knows the message is everything.
Shavone currently presides at VSCO as Director of Communications and Creative Partnerships — the popularity of the photo editing app in today’s golden age of Instagram means that her work speaks for itself. As the first African-American woman to join tech giants Twitter and Instagram’s communications teams, Shavone has been breaking barriers from day one in leading novel projects involving top talent from music and popular culture. Her work centers on the future generation, collaborating with Gen-Z’s formidable creative community and musical talents on editorial work and media campaigns. Her expertise runs the gamut from youth culture, wellness, diversity, lifestyle, fashion, and beauty to art; not least including Magic in Her Melanin, a creative organization that focuses on elevating the stories of people of color by bridging the gap between those creatives and the tech industry. Her most recent project includes the #BlackJoyMatters, an initiative started at VSCO with the aim of encouraging people to share their personal stories on social media focusing on positivity and joy at its heart. A multi-hyphenate whose occupations include model, musician, activist, and self-described disruptor, Shavone is the epitome of the high-functioning creative whose persona and personal journey embodies the spirit of a true Performance Changer.
Shavone’s work journey this year is a familiar journey for many of those currently working and living under lockdown. Coming from a formerly busy and active lifestyle, the new normal can come as a steep adjustment which led to Shavone’s realization of the toll that isolation and sheltering in place can have on not only work performance but on the body and spirit. She emphasizes the importance of self-care, along with physical and mental wellness during this time. “I’ve personally focused on finding time to stay creative, connected, and inspired throughout my time sheltering in place at home.” Electing to refocus on her musical endeavors and nurturing her relationships are a couple of the positive changes to her personal life that have risen from sheltering in place. There is yet one more silver lining: we’re all in this together. “We’ve had to navigate through this new journey of remote connectedness and togetherness, all through the power of digital and collective online experiences.” The Porsche Design Acer Book RS makes it easy to collaborate and stay connected with its ultra-fast Thunderbolt™ 4, providing 40 Gbps of data transfer and can also deliver power to the laptop when plugged into an external display (up to two 4K or one 8K). Technology is an essential tool for staying connected during the pandemic, keeping conversations and teamwork bright and dynamic anywhere in the world.
Today, working in the creative industries necessitates a seamless, intimate knowledge and relationship with the latest in technology. The best of tech should empower creatives to form instantaneous dialogue around new ideas and bring them to fruition. “Technology is absolutely the central nucleus fueling every aspect of my career and creative community, from music to fashion.” Whether proactive or reactive, real-time collaboration is an essential part of work. Porsche Design Acer Book RS’s Full HD IPS touchscreen, featuring the richest color and tones courtesy of a 340 nits display, makes it possible to fully realize the potential of the creative community. High-fidelity speakers and microphones provide sharp, clear audio and support dependable video conferencing for the most seamless work-from-home experience. Working from anywhere, anytime, with the highest quality image output and tactile versatility, Porsche Design Acer Book RS is part of the technology which makes it possible for creative work to flourish, even in lockdown. “Technology [gives] us the ability to take ownership of our creative ideas and identity, with more access to build community and create as a collective.”
With as grand a vision for the future as that of Shavone Charles, performance is key — especially in terms of playing multiple roles. The tech, which houses the criss-crossing network of ideas needs to be flawless, and in the form of an ultrathin laptop that is verified by Intel® Evo™ platform, it comes close. Shavone’s mission to empower her community and underrepresented voices in the tech and creative industries drives both her vision and performance. Porsche Design Acer Book RS’s New 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics deliver new levels of performance to creative applications on stunning displays, delivering the most elevated performance that technology has yet to offer. Efficiency is a standard requirement, yet Porsche Design Acer Book RS brings it to the next level with multiple cooling functions via copper heat pipes, cooling mechanisms at the hinge, and adjustable fan speeds for the ultimate functionality.
“I want to help shape a world where differences and unique perspectives are celebrated, valued, and empowered.” Shavone sums up her career, community work, and creative efforts as “necessary work.” Wherever her work takes her and whoever she’s speaking to, Porsche Design Acer Book RS creates an infallible foundation for new connections and ideas from music albums to photo shoots, helping Shavone to lead this new tradition forward together with like-minded visionaries.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS firmly places itself in the legacy of Porsche’s legendary design philosophy to always optimize function. Bringing together only the most essential elements, the device is a statement in its purity. The 3K carbon fiber cover is the defining feature, framed by high-standard 6063 aluminum alloy. Delicate diamond-cut CNC-machined edges provide an ergonomic profile while maintaining its portability and imbuing the device with bold contours. Elevated and enduring, the captivating design takes it well into the future, installing it as another icon in the Porsche firmament.
With its precise features, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS exudes quiet confidence. A unibody frame contains the relentless computing power of the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, verified by Intel® Evo™. Meanwhile, the 14-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen is made with Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass – all the better to ward off stain and odor-causing bacteria.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS is more than capable of keeping pace with your on-the-go lifestyle. The 56Wh battery ensures up to 17 hours of continuous use, while fast-charging capabilities provide 4 hours of use after just 30 minutes of charge-time.

Offering style and control like no other, the Porsche Design Acer Mouse RS features a low-cut profile that draws on the aerodynamic principles of a race car. Combining wireless Bluetooth 5.0 convenience with a pedal-like carbon fiber button design, the mouse allows users to switch between gears on the fly with a dedicated button that allows you to switch between 800, 1600, and 3200 DPI sensitivities.
The pinnacle in mobile computing only deserves the finest carrying gear. The travel pack adopts a modular design that binds together a pouch and sleeve using magnetic clasps, while the sleeve’s detachable lid ingeniously doubles as a mousepad. In addition, 1680D polyester lends the sleeve enduring scratch resistance and water repellency.
Featuring ECCO® PALERMO XA Leather construction, the travel pouch connects to the notebook sleeve using magnetic clasps and is perfectly sized to carry a number of small items as well as the Porsche Design Acer Mouse RS.
