Vectr is a free collaborative vector graphics editor, for both web & desktop, that aims to help everyone
create vector graphic designs easily and intuitively, using its simple yet powerful web and desktop
cross-platform tool. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned pro, or just getting your feet wet in design
for the first time — you’ll be up and running in no time flat.
The most active users of Vectr are currently not designers but software engineers, project managers,
bloggers and social media specialists — those in need to deal with graphic editing in their everyday work
and can’t afford to spend time/money for complicated paid tools.
Designing is a social activity — people love sharing what they’ve created and want to receive immediate
feedback. Vectr understands this, which is why Vectr users are able to post their projects directly to
Facebook or Twitter with a unique URL that allows others to edit the copy of the project as their own, and
why over the coming year we’ll be building social collaboration directly into the editor.
Vectr is not only completely free, but also one of the only editors available cross-platforms — on the web
or as a desktop download — on Mac, Windows, Chromebook, or Linux. Up to now, most of these
platforms were stuck without alternatives to Adobe’s bloated/complicated products.
NEXT STORY: CROWDHOLDING :CO-CREATE WITH THE CROWD
Next Vectr team is planning to implement the marketplace for peer-to-peer designs sharing and develop
a premium account with advanced graphic design features. This should take the startup to the new level,
growing a strong internal community and opening up monetization channels.
