Instagram is absolutely great, you take a photo, apply one of many filters (if you desire) and share it with friends. That’s all there is too it. Sure you can also instantly upload it to a bunch of social platforms such as Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and etc. But the real juice is inside the app, browsing through thousands of photos that people have shot.
A lot of people at the Incase office (and our friends at Day19) are already using Instagram so we decided it was time to to set up an official “goincase” account. So now you can follow us with Instagram for iPhone! You’ll get to see exclusive snapshots from in and around our office, and what goes on behind the scenes.

When people ask me for advice on how to become an architect, I always recommend life drawing. Sketching the human form involves proportion, structure and shading, all of which are fundamental aspects of architecture. Things like iPad and Layers start to change this, when you can draw on the screen.
Even if you’re not an architect, you can still use Layers to draw on photos or paint masterpieces, no matter where you are.
