Extras, Libraries, and Free Things


At Northward Compass, we believe that studios should contribute back to the community of designers and developers. Here you’ll find some of our libraries and assets that you’re free to use on your own projects.

ArtisanJS – A Generative Art And Canvas Extension Library

Our first library, ArtisanJS, was released in 2010, and allowed others to create generative art and advanced canvas visuals in-browser. Learn more about ArtisanJS and download it, free.
