Pixels, Not Pixelated!
Simulating a 150 PPI (pixels per inch) length, the pixel measurement side enables you to divide any line up into 10 distinct pixels. Do you want to know how big your design will be within an application? See how all your buttons and design features will line up on the computer before you ever click the mouse!
A Modern Solution
We feature picas and pixel measurements in order to give you the options and freedom you need. A typographic unit, the pica is used for – you guessed it! - typography, and one pica is equivalent to a 12-pt font. Using a pica measurement, you can see how the measurements on your screen convert into physical measurements in the real world. What size do you need your font to be? Finally, you can determine this information while you are sketching, even setting up margin, column, and gutter sizes.
Sleek and Stylish
It is also fashionable, sure to attract attention your way for all the right reasons. You can do your desk work in an office, on an airplane, or even from the comfort of your home, and feel like you have done everything you need to do to strike an impressive image, Horizon complementing any and all looks.

Laser cutting demands precision, and Horizon is designed with precision in mind.
Created by Ufuk Koc and backed by financial manager / project coordinator Nulifer Poole, Horizon is a project that is years in the making. Ufuk is a digital designer who knows how to work efficiently, having worked for a blue-chip company in such fields as web UX and UI and product creation management. Passionate about sketching ideas and bringing them to life, he strives to inspire others and foster an exploration mindset.
In time, people around us showed interest in Horizon Ruler and asked us if they could have one for themselves. Intent on responding to their requests, previously a side project for Ufuk made Horizon Ruler his main focus. With Nulifer’s project management mastery, we are ready to get down to business and make Horizon available for all designers. We believe that HorizonRuler will enhance your productivity and elicit your ultimate creativity.
