  1. Excellent alternative to Illustrator since it allows you to edit vector graphics directly from the browser without the need to download any software. It has online storage space similar to Dropbox or OneDrive where you can save your designs as well as upload existing graphics and add them to your current design. In addition to this, Gravit has several free design templates at your disposal, an extensive library of icons (approximately 29,000), more than 1,000 photos, and Google fonts support. You can also collaborate simultaneously on the same file thanks to its teamwork tools. Please note that some features such as the CMYK workspace will require a premium paid account.

    It is a simple yet powerful vector editing program suitable for vector artists, web designers, publishers, logo designers, etc. It also features non-destructing boolean operations (better pathfinder), showcase mode, multiple strokes and fills, global palettes, and more, surprisingly without any clutter.

    Entirely free. Easier to use than Inkscape, better with vectors than Krita, and available on more platforms than Sketch. It's a little slow and gummy when you've made a very complicated picture, but it's honestly the best possible alternative I've found. Thank you, and thanks to Gravit.

    Intuitive, many of the same basic and intermediate functions as Adobe Illustrator. Icons/illustrations provided are great! Love the cloud storage capabilities too.

  2. It is one of the oldest and most reliable vector tools in the industry, not only offering excellent performance, but also providing an intuitive interface that's ideal for any beginner designers. Different from Illustrator, you can choose to pay a monthly subscription or obtain a license through a one-time purchase (although a bit expensive), which will include other compatible Corel design software such as Photo-Paint (Corel's alternative to Photoshop), as well as a font manager and content organization applications. CorelDRAW lets you edit multi-page documents, non-destructively convert bitmaps to vectors, and create QR codes.

    It's much easier to use and understand. It gives the average user a quicker grasp of editing and creating graphics. It is also less greedy with RAM.

  3. Figma has a bigger focus on UI design, wireframing and collaborative work. Like Sketch, its interface is cleaner and easier to understand than Illustrator. It's can also be used throught web browsers and collabore with more members of your team in real time. It features automatic cloud synchronization so you can use your files on the platform you want, in addition to unique features such as arc tools and vector networks, which allow non-designers to format their templates easily. Animated prototypes are definitely a great advantage to interact with your design before coding.

  4. Vectr is completely free and browser-based, offering a quick and easy way to get started with vector editing through an intuitive interface. Since it's browser based, each image has a custom URL that you can share with others to be reviewed and collaborate in real time with multiple people. You can export your finished work as an SVG, PNG, or JPEG file. Its features are much more simple than those offered by Illustrator, so it's really not recommended for very complex projects. However, it is an excellent choice if you are a beginner with vector editing software.

    Vectr has a great user interface and has lots of tools to fine tune designs. They have plenty of numerical value boxes to get better results with what you want and have an easy to learn interface. I have used it for quite a few projects. Great to make new icons with too! Love it!
