The new tool allows iPad users to create custom graphics from photographs, illustrations, or images that can be applied in their drawings and renderings.
The programming savvy designers behind New York–based Morpholio Appshave released another tool for Trace (iOS, free), the app they first released in 2012, to encourage individuals to sketch and ideate on their iPads. Stencil allows creatives to do exactly what its name implies, but on a digital platform: Overlay a graphic cutout atop a drawing, fill it with any color or color gradient, slide the template over, and repeat.
But what makes Stencil noteworthy—and patent pending—is its ability to generate a custom cutout from any image, photograph, or illustration, beyond the supplied 160 stencils that come with the app. This cutout could be a common architectural symbol, a decorative pattern to be repeated as wallpaper, or an image unique to a client, individual, brand, or place that can become a super graphic when stenciled atop a rendering.
