Benefits for you

Creator, Jacob Shirley is an urban designer and draughtsman. For 15 years, he has worked with architects, builders, and interior designers to create places and spaces. In his offices, he has seen overwhelming shelves of material binders, catalogs, and physical samples from vendors of all kinds. Whether it be tile, carpet, siding, roofing, or any material related to the construction of a building, Jacob noticed that there's a lack of space for one of each type of sample, and it takes precious time to reference exactly the right material when needed.

That's why Jacob created Spec Ninja, whose platform serves to provide a library to house a catalog of each material, with the convenient ability to place desired materials on drawing boards for new projects. The ease by which material boards can be added to, edited, noted, and printed at an instant is an opportunity to translate design ideas to visualization. It also makes storage a piece of cake -- now you can make the most of your office space!
