Ask any designer and they will tell you Adobe's suite of apps is crucial to their job. More recently, designers have been using Sketch to design mobile apps and digital products. Now, there is a new kid on block, and its name is Gravit.
Gravit's other two products link up nicely with Designer. Klex is a ready-made app for general design needs, with none of the hassle: flyer templates, Facebook posts or blog graphics -- it's all there. Designing something is as easy as dragging and dropping elements (shapes, illustrations, icons), text or images onto your canvas.
Thirdly, the cloud ties the two together. Everything you make in Klex or Designer is put in the Gravit Cloud to access later, similar to something like Google Drive or Dropbox. Everything designed in either Designer or Klex can be opened in the other app, and pre-made assets from Klex can be edited and modified in Designer. It's an integrated system that works extremely well in use.
Gravit was founded by Alexander Adam in June 2012, in Berlin. The German capital is well-known for is startups, with companies like EyeEm and Microsoft-owned Wunderlist hailing from the city. Gravit's in good company, then, to take on the might of Adobe, with a host of web-based cloud apps.
