Graphic is the new name for iDraw, a vec­tor draw­ing and illustration app orig­i­nally cre­ated by US de­vel­oper In­deeo, be­fore it was taken over by Au­todesk late last year. The good news is that the app has sur­vived the tran­si­tion (and the name change) and re­mains one of the best and most pow­er­ful pro­grams of its kind around, be­ing both easy to use and ca­pa­ble of cre­at­ing pro­fes­sion­al­look­ing graph­ics and il­lus­tra­tions – per­fect for use in lo­gos, web­sites and even as Xcode-ready files for that iOS app you’ve been work­ing on.

One of the rea­sons Graphic is so good is that comes equipped with a huge range of tools that en­able you to cre­ate lay­ered, scal­able vec­tor graph­ics, so beloved by de­sign­ers. Graphic also sup­ports a huge range of im­port and ex­port for­mats, in­clud­ing TIFF, JPEG and PSD files, en­sur­ing the il­lus­tra­tions that you cre­ate can be used al­most any­where.

The Mac version of Graphic can also be synced with the iOS version (£6.99, http://ap­ple.co/1kRw1cE), en­abling you to work on your de­signs us­ing the new iPad Pro and the pres­sure-sen­si­tive Ap­ple Pen­cil when you’re away from your Mac.
