When Adobe asked us to create a work to be featured in their Design Gallery, we found the perfect opportunity to show off our technical expertise and design savvy by inventing a digital canvas.
Odosketch seeks to recreate the decidedly non-digital experience of working with a sketchbook. Its papery textures, variety of brushes and intentional imperfections make you forget you're working on a screen.
We also added a playback feature that recreates a drawing from empty canvas to the completed piece animating the drawer's brush strokes (complete with erasures, cross-outs and do overs) and revealing the creative process at work.
But Odosketch is more than an application: its a community. Odo-sketchers can sign-in to their own private collection of work and browse recent and featured sketches by other artists.
Since its original release in 2005, over 100,000 sketches have been saved. We continue to tinker, improve and upgrade the application to serve the needs of the apps loyal following.
We're not certain which impresses us more, the application or the work people are creating with it.
It's been thirteen years since we started Odopod.
We've always wanted one thing: to do the best work of our lives. Along the way, we have been joined by an eclectic and exceptionally talented bunch of people who wanted the same thing. Together, we've built a company we love.
Two years ago, Odopod was acquired by Nurun.
The acquisition was a validation of everything we had built. It was also a catalyst for some big changes we wanted to make. We began to tackle bigger, thornier problems and to work all over the world. With Nurun, we've had a series of huge wins and have been producing our best work yet.
That's why we recently decided to retire the Odopod brand, formally adopt Nurun as our name, and take the reins of Nurun's US operations.
We're all still here—same team with the same appetite for great work, only now with different e-mail addresses and more frequent flyer miles. And we're growing, so send your talented friends our way.
Keep an eye out for new work from Nurun. It will be our best yet.
