Sketching out an alternative to Illustrator

A little addition to the iLab this evening … not directly an app, but a piece of software for your Mac. I apologize to eventual PC-users out there, but you don’t know what your missing 😉

As a apple-addict, I love things that are intuitive, simple to use, and sleek. No need to say that in my opinion, Illustrator, the very famous graphic design software, does not fulfill any of these requirements. Like really not.

So, when I got to the point where I felt like drawing my own schemes, sketches, doodles, figures, I look for alternatives and found SKETCH in the App Store. It look easier to use then Paint, but does everything a graphic does software should do.

Needless to say that you don’t need to google “How to make a triangle in Illustrator ?” to find out how to draw a triangle.


You can visit the website of the developer if you want to look the stuff you can do with it. And here the link to the app store.

The only negative thing about it is the price. Of course it is not expensive compared to the Adobe Suite, but 49$ is not on the cheap side. I bought is about a year ago and is was 3 times cheaper … of course they improved it a lot, but I don’t think it justifies the huge price increase.

But if you don’t won’t to pull your hair out because of Illustrator, and like graphic design made easy, you know this is actually possible.
