I went to college with Steve and Igor, and they've designed and created something pretty slick. While these guys were in the basement of good old Kinney Hall, we all knew they were made for a bright future full of big ideas and new products. Today, I'd like to show off their product called Imbue. Fellow designers, look alive.
Fumbling a giant T-square and drawing board + a bag full of other pointy awkward tools across campus was an arduous task (as if freshmen aren't nervous enough to be walking across campus). Step aside, cumbersome drawing tools. Imbue is a new design staple that has replaced a multitude of classic tools, but in the form of one versatile tool to keep inside a Moleskin sketchbook, so it never gets misplaced. The phrase 'where have you been all my life?' couldn't be more appropriate.
Steve and Igor were fully funded and supported after featuring Imbue on Kickstarter (watch their video here too), where they rounded up 1,240 backers and $48,671. They're in the process of finishing up Imbue orders now, and will be releasing a 2.0 version in the near future. I'm super excited for you guys, and couldn't be more proud of my fellow CCAD grads! Cheers to you guys, and I can't wait to see where the 2.0 version takes you!
