A very easy to use, direct vector drawing software that gives you quick access to multiple tools for creating your own illustrations and graphics
Working with vector tools has become the norm if you want to create high quality graphic content and drawings. Artboard is a powerful OS X app that enables you to design graphic content that can be integrated into your presentations and illustrations without too much trouble.
Well organized vector drawing solution that comes with support for multiple layers
Finding your way around the Artboard application is fairly intuitive: within the app’s main window, the central area is reserved for the canvas, while the top toolbar, and other small additional panels provide access to most editing tools, which have self explanatory names.
Moreover, Artboard comes with a built in collection of graphic elements, maps, flags, and other clipart objects that can be easily integrated into your own projects. On the left side of the main window you will be able to see a list with the current layers available in your project and select the one you want to work on.
Streamline your workflow with the help of a large inbuilt vector template collection
To take things even further, Artboard integrates a collection of templates and layouts that can be used as the starting point for creating business cards, invitations, cards, fliers, and other signs.
When you are satisfied with the result, you can easily share your projects by email or on social media, by sending the artwork to your Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr account.
Of course, you can save your work as an Artboard project and continue working on it at a later time, but you can also export the graphics directly to JPG, TIFF, PNG, or PDF documents.
