#1 Product of the DayJanuary 08, 2018

Dotgrid is a simple vector glyph illustration tool, that works by adding control points and drawing different line-types between them. The tool was created to design logos and glyphs for various personal projects, and made available as a free and open source application.

Exports to SVG, PNG and DOT.

    Looks clean, and a great Idea


    Not great to use - would benefit from some UX/UI work

    Use of keyboard modifiers would be nice, and the ability ctrl+z ;)

    Nice and minimal <3 Great for quick logo or icon design.


    Ctrl+z is a little weird on Mac. File exports to .dot, .png, and .svg at the same time. Wish I could choose which one to export to.

    It's fun to play with. Just wish there were more features.

@danie_nis I really enjoy this too! Once I fiddle around with something I know how much I would like to pay for it. Definitely planning on playing around then paying

@vivalldi98 My idea too - playing then paying :) Gives others the impression that you are confident. I hate being limited to "trial version".

You have to rethink how you draw paths, but I really like the minimal approach. Good work!

This is fun! Super weird at first but I like it now. I already started designing some marks with it. Icons were kinda confusing but after trial and error I got them.

@tony_murphy Learning the a, s, d, f shortcuts makes the app a lot more fun to use. You can collapse the option with `tab`.
