About penccil

Your creative ecosystem.

penccil is an ecosystem for creativity of all types across all disciplines: art, architecture, illustration, fashion, graphics, design, interiors and photography. penccil brings creative individuals and communities across the globe together to share work and reach new friends and like-minded talents.

Portfolio, presentation, co-creation.

Combining portfolio management, presentation tools and a unique co-creation environment, penccil believes that creativity is social. penccil wants to encourage the sharing of ideas and comment and unleash new creative possibilities, collaborations and working methods to start a new age of co-creation.

Creativity is social.

The creative process is a fluid back and forth between inspiration and activity, of doing, undoing and improving. penccil is designed to support creative minds in the entire creative process. It makes it easy to start projects, to find and invite like-minded creative individuals, and to collaborate.

Create, curate, collaborate.

Collaboration in penccil works both with delay and in realtime. In realtime, collaborators see activities by other members on their own screen at the time of making. If collaborators cannot meet at the same time, their event board shows what happened in their projects, and the penccil process slider shows a timeline of the creative process as it happens.

It's all about your projects.

penccil is based on projects. Projects can be created simply by drag and drop. In projects, penccil members can create collections, comment and sketch on images, present, fetch images for curation, and collaborate with others. penccil project founders can invite other designers and check what is happening in their projects.

Discover and be discovered.

penccil magazines are collections for defined interests in the creative arts. They are calls for ceative ideas, managed from within their own dashboard, where sponsors can establish rules, designate mentors and judges, communicate with participants and manage timeframes.
