While completing his Masters in informatics, our CTO Frank Schlegel, created an iOS prototype that transformed images into comic caricatures. The results were so impressive that he exhibited them at the university and people started asking “Which artist created these digital prints?”. We told them an IT-student did this using only a photo and his iPhone 4S – and they were completely taken by surprise and wanted to get their hands on the app.
Since the questions for the app and artwork did not stop, Frank and Sebastian decided to create a mobile app that would enable anyone to create digital artwork with an iPhone and iPad.
Sebastian founded Digital Masterpieces in 2013 and worked together with Frank on their first user-facing iOS app “Pic2Comic”, which was released in 2014. Although it was a very, very rough technical demonstrator, people loved the effects and appreciated our efforts to make complex technology understandable and accessible for everyone.
This was the starting point for an ongoing journey that is still defined and led by intriguing images. Although the team behind the BeCasso app family has increased, the values that define our work remain the same.
We are a small team of highly skilled and passionate tech and app-enthusiasts, who love what they do and who are more than happy to share this love with our users. We are creating high-quality, easy-to-use apps that enable our users to be creative, to have fun, relax and create their own, unique and beautiful digital masterpieces.
