Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I tried Pattern before it was released and I absolutely loved it. You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. This is what the Apple Pencil was designed for; the lines it produces both look and feel great. You’ll quickly find yourself using gestures too though, and it’s downright enjoyable to erase with your hand and quickly make rectangles and other shapes with your fingers. You can draw up a web layout, and make notes over it, in seconds.

 

 

Andy has give us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us about what you hope it may help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
