About

Maintained and supported by husband and wife team, Derek and Lindsay, Inkpad is all about creating beautiful vector artwork.

Derek Pollard

With over twenty years of software development experience, Derek has been inspired by the success of the iPhone and iPad and the opportunities to share software in the App Store. With his trusty office gerbils he designs and develops enhancements to Inkpad.

Lindsay Pollard

Having worked for several years in website and graphic design, Lindsay uses her creative experience to help Derek. Together with her team of rats, Lindsay creates the sample images, contributes feature requests and is the Inkpad chief bug tester!

History

Inkpad was originally created by Steve Sprang in 2011, following on from his success with the art package Brushes. In 2013 he released it as Open Source with the intention of it being taken over as a community project. Unfortunately the Inkpad project went unmaintained for roughly 2 years and the original app has now disappeared from the App Store.

With the disappearance of the Inkpad app we took over development and support because both of us use Inkpad - you can see some of Lindsay's artwork in the app screenshots and samples. We wanted to ensure the continued development and support of a product we and others enjoy so much.
