Portable visualising

I have been using my iPad for sketching on the go for a while now. Practically, while certainly up to par, it cannot fully replace the fluidity or feel of my pen and paper for rapid sketches. However, it is still my weapon of choice for creating design drafts on-site based on photo material, which after some tweaking can yield some pretty eye-catching results.

Garden viewThis is a photo from my friend’s place. He’s in the process of upgrading his new home, and have some ideas for the garden. After I import the photo to my iPad, I launch Sketchbook and base my sketch on it.

Afterwards, I add filters in Snapseed, and suddenly it’s not just a design sketch anymore. I have a visualisation that is actually presentable – and I did it in twenty minutes on-site.

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
