Our featured sponsor this week is Artboard, a truly impressive vector drawing application that’s simple enough for everyone to use.

Artboard has all the features you need in an advanced vector editing app: over 20 tools for drawing and navigation, custom shapes, clip art, boolean operations, layers, advanced style creation and a lot more. And it’s only getting better!

There’s a new Format Bar that simplifies the interface for creating simple styles without needing to open any palettes. Also, advanced “stacked” styles can now be created with the Style Inspector.

If you’re new to vector editing or just need to learn your way around Artboard, the developers include a helpful orientation video to help you get started. There are also some free tutorials available on the Artboard Website.

Go Get It!

Go grab your free trial from the Artboard website. Once you realize that you can’t live without it, the full version can be purchased on the Mac App Store.
