Makr is an iPad app which taps into the heart of the maker/DIY movement. It combines elements of a utility, a retail experience and a blog to inspire and enable people to design and print various materials. Geared toward creative entrepreneurs and DIYers, Makr provides templates, assets and tools to create materials for small business branding, parties and events, and home use. The goal is to make design tools accessible and affordable in a world previously dominated by professional software. It encourages people to be creative and connects the digital world with physical output.
