An advanced, natural design tool for the mobile professional.

As a product designer, I need a tool with the flexibility of a traditional sketchbook but with the speed and versatility of a digital drawing tool. Concepts allows me to iterate faster while remaining flexible and creative.

Daniel Amara, Designer

 

The Beginning of Every Project

Everything is designed. Our houses and hospitals, mobile phones and websites, our video games and jetpacks… all of our ideas start as Concepts that grow over time.

Concepts (the app) is an advanced version of sketching paper, where natural tools meet vector manipulation so ideas can change and grow as you do.

Used by leading designers at:
Disney
Apple
Philips
Nike
Playstation
Illumination
HP
Unity
 

Resolution Independent

Concepts is powered by our next-generation hybrid vector-raster Fluid Engine — 64-bit precision with multi-threaded rendering, an infinite canvas with sharp strokes at any zoom level, and mobile from the ground up.

Built for iPad Pro + Apple Pencil

Optimized for 120Hz ProMotion displays and the ultra-low latency of Apple Pencil, Concepts is more responsive than any other drawing experience. Just like paper, only better.

No-Commitment Sketching

Make rapid iterations or explore happy accidents — Concepts is flexible to the core. Pick up anything you’ve ever drawn with a tap+hold, and copy it, measure it, change the tool or line weight or colors, or just throw it away. It’s the beauty of traditional tools with the power of vectors.

Having the ability to draw with real accuracy on the iPad using a tool like Concepts has fundamentally changed my workflow. Now both the initial sketches and the more polished products live side-by-side in the same documents, and I can go back and forth from freehand to highly technical drawings without even switching to a new document.
