His experience as a VFX artist has given him a unique perspective on the creative process, allowing him to develop intuitive solutions that allow creators to focus entirely on their work.
Speaking about the collaboration, CEO of SyncSketch, Bernhard Haux, opined that:
“Both Unity and SyncSketch have always been focused on empowering creators. It’s at the heart of what we do. By combining our technology and talent, we will continue to define the way creators will want to work and communicate, from anywhere in the world.”
