A New Digital Journal from Morpholio Unlocks Digital Magic with 5 Super Tools for Creatives

Back to School with a Digital Journal

The one difference is that this year's student is going to have a creative edge.

Here we are again, in the middle of August with summer nearing its final glorious days, and school just around the corner. The one difference is that this year's student is going to have a creative edge. Forget the heavy bag and coffee stained paper. Your favorite journal can now be digital, infinite, and beyond cool.

"We all use sketchbooks, notepads, and journals to record the day-to-day: our strongest ideas, greatest inspirations, personal thoughts, places we’ve been, and hopefully all the incredible things we will create. They are part of our life, our memory, who we are and how we will shape the world around us." says Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co-Creator,

The problem with digital sketchbooks is that while they are slowly turning everyone into digital artists, there is still something missing in their equation. “Most creative processes are anything but linear, and rarely isolated. Creatives need a free flowing workspace that is open to whatever media the world has to offer, more often than not, a mixed media.” says Kenoff,, “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?”

Today, Morpholio introduces Journal, an app that redefines the sketchbook as a mixing chamber where photos can inspire drawings, and drawings can inspire thoughts. It is a place to create, reflect, muse, develop, and reinvent; whether it's starting the creative process or developing a masterpiece. Now, designers, artists, writers, or members of any creative culture can write, draw, sketch, collage, paint, or color on anything, anywhere, with a sketchbook of infinite possibility.

Journal Unleashes 5 Super Tools:

1. Sketch on anything, anywhere.
Sketch and write on any media. Not everyone wants to start with a blank canvas and now there is analternative. Design over an image, get creative with a photo, or make backgrounds of any type. 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.

2. Rapid Fire Viewing
The ultra responsive design relies on research into the human eye’s amazing capacity to rapidly assess high-bandwidth visual information. People now collect and store more information than ever before and require new ways to get through it–faster and smarter–while not missing what they need. Clearly the scroll is not the answer. In Journal, soar through the 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 the entire book accessible to discovery and review within seconds.

3. Creativeware: 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 any individual 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.

4. Collage Madness
Not sure how what to do with the 1000 photos that 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 the user 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 discoveries, ideas and creations.

5. 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." Says Kenoff. Morpholio has also curated calendar, notebook, grid and task list templates to help organize life.

Never lose an idea again.
“Journal is an infinite sketchbook that goes with you and grows with you. 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,” says Mark Collins, Morpholio Co-Creator. Morpholio Journal is ideal for designers, architects, photographers, artists, travelers, or members of any creative culture. Its unique book interface affords instant and easy navigation of thousands of pages, unlocking infinite potential. Collins adds "finally, you can keep track of everything you encounter, and find new ways to visualize, test, and explore the world around you."
