When it comes to creative tools, let’s not beat around the bush, many designers choose to harness the power of Adobe’s Creative Cloud apps. But that could all change with the arrival of a compelling alternative: CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 (opens in new tab).
But CorelDRAW isn’t new, right? The software has been around and a popular choice among loyal users for years. But 2019 marks the year CorelDRAW spreads its wings, now offering creatives the freedom and power they’ve never been able to access before from any other creative software provider.
The new all-enhanced CorelDRAW Graphics Suite offers an affordable, comprehensive suite of tools to meet every artistic need. Now available for macOS (for the first time in almost two decades), CorelDRAW users can experience the freedom to work however they choose – on Windows or Mac – in an intuitive interface developed specifically for the platform of choice.

- Symmetry Drawing mode: Create a range of symmetrical designs, from simple objects to complex kaleidoscopic effects in real time, and boost your productivity by automating what can typically be is usually a very time-consuming workflow.
- Pointillizer: Generate high-quality vector mosaics from any number of selected vector or bitmap objects with just a few clicks. Inspired by the Pointillism painting technique, it’s great for creating vehicle wraps, window decor projects, and more.
- Shadow Effects: Manipulate live drop shadows with your cursor using the Drop Shadow tool, eliminating the cumbersome task of repositioning them in a dialog box. Ideal for those working with cutters and plotters, CorelDRAW’s unique Block Shadow feature adds solid vector shadows to objects and text, greatly reducing the number of lines and nodes in shadows.
