Protosketch (2013)

Protosketch was a small project I worked on while in the employ of Design Commission. DC runs a successful sketch-on-paper line of products for user experience designers called UI Stencils. As a studio side project, we began imagining how prototyping on paper could be extended digitally with a mobile application.

The concept manifested as an iOS application that lets users capture photos of their notepads and create linkable presentations of different app screens. Protosketch was personally notable since it was the first instance I used a little computer-vision wizardry outside of interactive art: one of the cornerstone ease-of-use features of Protosketch is that the app automatically crops, de-skews and enhances captured sketches.
