Company Summary

Redrawn Labs was founded in January 2012, and Emotish is our first product. It is being built out for both brands and users. With an inspired design, a unique user interface, and a specific, intuitive user experience, Emotish has the necessary ingredients to not only distinguish itself in the photo-sharing space but also quickly achieve what is arguably most elusive in the mobile app realm: monetization.
