Munich, Germany – iOrnament artwork created by Seb Lester was used as a prominent design element by Apple Inc. in context with the launch of the new iPad Pro. The drawing app iOrnament turns simple strokes into mesmerizing patterns by making use of simple rules of symmetry. The internationally renowned calligrapher Seb Lester used iOrnament to create luminous symmetric designs that are currently shown in Apple Retail Stores. More designs were showcased as a major graphics element in the hands on area of the WWDC 2017 in San Jose, California and on the Apple website.
iOrnament makes full use of Apple Pencil features to allow the full bandwidth of expressive stroke and colour variations controlled by your pen tip. The App combines pattern repetition and advanced pen control features to turn subtle hand movements into unique artistic strokes. The iOS drawing App is a popular artist tool for both professionals and drawing enthusiasts. “For creating beautiful patterns and at the same time getting complete peace of mind there’s nothing better than iOrnament.” says Chicago based digital artist Susan Murtaugh.
Seb Lester tweeted about his success: “bought an iPad 9 months ago. Nearly didn’t because wasn’t sure it would lead anywhere. It led to appearing in iPad commercial.” Seb Lester showcased artworks in both Procreate and iOrnament and was also part of the recent iPad Pro commercial. iOrnament founder Jurgen Richter-Gebert comments about Seb Lester’s work with iOrnament “Seb understands how to make the most out of the tools given in iOrnament. His drawings are rich of glowing colours while he makes genuine use of the Apple Pencil functions and combines them with his very unique style. He gives us an idea of the numerous opportunities for art and design which are possible with the Apple Pencil tools.”
