Professional graphic design tools are too complex and way too expensive for non-designers. Entrepreneurs or small business owners often need to edit or create some graphics for their marketing materials really fast and urgently but softwares like Adobe are all tied up to the desktop making them obsolete in the digital world.
Now there’s a new player on the market that aims to solve those problems. Welcome Vectr – free and intuitive graphic design app built with a mission of graphic design accessible to everyone.
Vectr is a handy tool for those of you who are just getting started with vector graphics. Vectr could be used to create any kinds of vector graphic projects, among them:
- Website mockups

The team also claims that they’ve built a powerful collaboration engine which is going to allow for Google-docs style collaboration possibilities for professional designers in the future.
