Concepts is an award-winning, high performance sketching and design app for creative professionals. Our first version for Windows is optimized for the latest devices including Surface, the Surface Pen and Surface Dial. Sketch your ideas with natural tools and vector-based strokes on an infinite canvas, then adjust them after-the-fact with intuitive gestures. When you’re ready for feedback, quickly share with colleagues and friends anytime, anywhere. - Sketch, design and take notes with fluid and organic brushes. Our realistic tools respond to pressure, tilt and velocity, and stay crystal clear while zooming. - Zoom and pan across the infinite canvas for boundless imagination and creativity. - Customize your UI for a comfortable, focus-driven workflow. - Design faster with eight customizable tool slots, tool presets for size, opacity and smoothing, and the beautiful COPIC color wheel that helps you choose colors that look amazing together, all the time. - Tap+hold to select any part (or whole) of your sketch and adjust it, tweak it, copy it and move it with natural gestures. - Import images as reference materials or use them as part of your designs. - Unlimited Undo with a two-finger tap on screen. - Infinite, adjustable layers with automatic tool-based sorting help to keep your work organized. - Choose your background paper type or a custom background color. - Set your finger action to do something separate from your stylus, like panning or selecting. - Export to standard and high-resolution formats for beautiful printing and fast feedback between colleagues and friends. Concepts is used by top designers at Disney, Playstation, Philips, HP, Apple, Unity, Illumination Entertainment, and many more. - "I use Concepts more than any other tool. I absolutely love it. The natural, fluid, vector-based workflow is so easy to use, but incredibly powerful. The technology never gets in the way of creativity. The fast and clean user experience makes it a joy to use.” - Yarrow Cheney, production designer, film director - "The Concepts app has not changed what I do, just transformed how I do it. It offers me the power, flexibility and adaptability of technology with all the sensitivity and immediacy of traditional hand drawing. In short, it is an app that I now cannot imagine being without, and the only time I've experienced something that betters pen and paper.” - Ewen Miller, head of Calderpeel Architects - “I use it just for everything.
