Morpholio Journal - The Sketchbook Disrupted

Morpholio Journal: The Sketchbook Disrupted

by Levent Ozler

Morpholio recently launched Journal, an infinite sketchbook app that lets photographers, artists, writers, or members of any creative culture to write, draw, sketch, collage, paint, or color on anything, anywhere. The app redefines the sketchbook as a mixing chamber where your photos can inspire drawings, and your drawings can inspire thoughts.

"Most creative processes are anything but linear, and rarely isolated. Creatives, and Photographers in particular, need a free flowing workspace that is open to whatever media the world has to offer, more often than not, a mixed media," commented Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co-Creator, "What if you want the freedom to combine the treasure-trove of photos, images, hand sketches, and drawings you are capturing everyday into one ultimate platform?"

Sketch on Any Photo, Anywhere

Journal allows you to sketch and write on any media. Not everyone wants to start with a blank canvas and now you don't have to. Design over an image, get creative with a photo, or make backgrounds of any type. You can sketch on top of any surface, and the sketch will literally move, twist and scale with the image it's on. Draw on everything to build the ultimate archive of inspirations, ideas, and encounters; allowing the long memory of the computer to augment the short memory of the individual.

Rapid Fire Viewing

The ultra responsive design relies on research into the human eye's amazing capacity to rapidly assess high-bandwidth visual information. In Journal you can soar through your infinite number of sketches, images, notes, photos and thoughts with the touch of a finger. This groundbreaking approach to viewing yields an ultra fast, highly optimized page-turn interface making your entire book accessible to discovery and review within seconds.

"Journal is an infinite sketchbook that goes with you and grows with you," commented Mark Collins, Morpholio Co-Creator. "Its speed at jumping between pages is important. It's about reviewing and remembering as much drawing and documenting. Its unbounded number of pages and ludicrous speed will make enjoying all of your sketchbooks a daily pleasure."

Photoware: the Photographers' Set of Essential Pens, Pencils and Color Palettes

Journal includes eight pens, brushes and pencils including chisel markers, charcoal, and other rendering tools capable of sheer digital magic. With unique line types per tool, they are carefully calibrated, not just for artists, but for photographers who need to sketch in fine detail and diagram with precision. Sixteen color palettes, created by award winning graphic designers at New York's MTWTF bring polish to your artwork by putting expert color theory at your fingertips. A perfect arsenal of pixel ink for true creatives.

Collage Madness

Not sure how what to do with the 1000 photos you haven't posted? Collage, a tool of invention for many creative cultures, has been used to re-mix any number of visual media to promote new ways of seeing. Finally, a sophisticated drawing and painting platform opens up to the art of sampling, creating a collage tool that allows you to layer your everyday findings and thoughts in one place. Build mixed media artwork or layouts, photo albums, mood boards, material boards, scrapbooks, or rich archives of your discoveries, ideas and creations.

Super Notes

Sporadic thoughts or moments of inspiration happen daily. Organizing and noting are essential to any form of journaling. Morpholio incorporates sophisticated technology to make writing easy and legible, allowing it to remain an integral part of thinking with your hands. Add notes anywhere on or off a page and write anything from paragraphs to simple tabs to mark your place. Morpholio has also curated calendar, notebook, grid and task list templates to help organize your life.
