Ken Shuttleworth is the architect behind some of the world’s most iconic buildings, including the landmark Gherkin in London. In college, he picked up the nickname “Ken the Pen” for his lightning-fast drafting skills. 

“Ken the Pen” needs a new nickname. One of Shuttleworth’s favorite things: the free iPad sketching app, Brushes

“Nothing beats a pencil and paper, but there are times when I need to go further,” Shuttleworth says. “Sketching on the iPad lets me move things around, copy and paste and add color and tone. I can save hundreds of drawings and show them to people wherever I go.”
