The Morpholio Project, the team of architects and designers behind Morpholio (for building/sharing your portfolio) and Morpholio Trace (the app that lets you draw on top of images as if using tracing paper), have just launched Trace 2.0. The new version introduces three fantastic new tools that hope to "put [the design] process in hyper drive."

As Co-Creator Anna Kenoff puts it: “The goal of the app was to embrace and enhance the fast paced and messy process of idea building, bringing back hand drawing to a culture no longer beholden to the desktop computer.” 

Check out the three new features of Trace 2.0, after the break...

Sketch + Filter

Trace 2.0 now offers 12 filters (such as ink, marker, and perforation) that can be added once you've developed your sketch, "hybridizing drawing and rendering" instantly.

Your Ideas...in Color

Trace 2.0 now offers series of color palettes that have been curated into "predefined sets of colors that work beautifully together."

Layers: Past, Present & Future

The final new feature is an incredibly useful one for architects: "users can now go back and forth between all layers of a sketch and add, edit or remove information as necessary. Editing and comparison are now possible as you literally peel through iterations of a drawing."
