That's why we built Vectornator. It’s a vector graphic design platform that doesn’t feel stuck in 1987. It’s the first product in the most intuitive, precise, and user-friendly suite of vector design tools in the world.
We want to make the tools we would have wanted when we started out as designers.
CEO & Founder of Linearity
In 2017, our then-17-year-old founder, Vladimir Danila, set out to provide a solution to the frustrating experience of digital designing, and Vectornator was born.
Computer graphics have always been pixel-based, but it used to be more obvious in the past. Screen resolution was low, color capabilities were limited, and computational power was scarce, so designers had to design in a creative box that was restricted by the constraints of the hardware.
Adobe Photoshop was born in 1988 out of this paradigm; when screen resolution was stuck somewhere around 72dpi.
As the desktop publishing revolution ramped up during the late 80s, the need arose for a “pixel-less” way of creating computer graphics for print and publishing, which have a way higher resolution. Technologies like Postscript (precursor to PDF) paved the way for the early vector graphics movement. With screens this sharp, designing “straight into pixels” was no longer the most optimal method of designing.
It was then vector graphics had a resurgence, as an abstracted layer on top of pixels. Now, Vectornator is disrupting the pixel to its fullest in everything but photography by making vectors as easy to work with as pixels.
