Being a designer at the moment is great because a wealth of modern design applications are available that let you easily bring your ideas to the screen: Sketch, Affinity Designer, Adobe XD (beta) and Figma, to name just a few (not to mention the classics, Photoshop and Illustrator). One app that is quite new, though — and perhaps a bit overlooked — is the free Gravit Designer app. Gravit gives you all of the tools needed to create functional and elegant screen designs. It can also be used to make icons, designs for print, presentations and much more.
With the recent release, it’s gotten even better: Now you can import your Sketch files into Gravit (similarly to Figma, which also supports the new Sketch file format), save designs locally or sync them to Gravit Cloud, and get started quickly with design templates. Gravit also has Symbols and improved anchoring options (also called constraints in other apps) now. Gravit Designer is free, works on all major OS platforms and is available as both a web and desktop (standalone) app.
