Inhabitat: How did the idea for Morpholio come about?

Morpholio: The idea for Morpholio is actually still evolving and hopefully will always be slightly in flux. In 2011, five of us came together to discuss how technology, device culture and social media are impacting our design process and ultimately the role of “feedback" in design. Our first meeting was at a bar on the Upper West Side where we agreed on the need for better design “utilities” and ultimately determined that the potentials of harnessing of human signals through mobile devices could present new territory for designers. We then started “The Morpholio Project” as a research experiment and within days began concept and software investigations relying on a small group of colleagues and friends for input.

The goal was to think of your work (the portfolio) as a “tool” rather than as merely “representation.” Morpholio ultimately asked what would happen if you could merge processes of presentation, critique and collaboration into a single elastic platform? We are now only nine months in, have four unique apps (two coming soon) and we are quickly on our way to 20,000 members sharing their work in sketches, desk crits, and public pinups.
