Long before Instagram had a location feature to image posts, I had the idea to create a social network based around discovering experiences around you. Built up layers of human experiences in the places where they occurred, viewable by future visitors. Imprints became that idea, allowing users to record location-based photos, videos, and audio clips and share them. I named this kind of location-based media experience an Imprint. Nearby users could discover Imprints around them, and all users could view a global feed, as well as leaving comments and following the users they liked.
Imprints was designed back in the days of iOS 5, when textures ruled the land and there was only one size of iPhone. Because this app was centered around recording experiences wherever you might find them, I chose a journal theme inspired by Moleskin notebooks and tactile linens.
I designed and coded a set of custom filters that lean towards the artistic, including a cross-processing emulation that randomizes its effects. It was available as an in-app purchase within Imprints.
