Redefining state‑of‑the‑art graphics editing

Graphite is an in-development raster and vector graphics package that's free and open source. It is powered by a node graph compositing engine that fuses layers with nodes, providing a fully nondestructive editing experience.

Art takes shape

Make vector art out of shapes ranging from simple geometric primitives to complex Bézier curves.

Style your shapes with strokes, fills, and gradients. Mix your layers with blend modes. Then export as SVG.

Co-createIdeateIllustrateGenerateIterate with Imaginate

Imaginate is a node powered by Stable Diffusion that makes AI-assisted art creation an easy, nondestructive process.

Make it stylish

Magically reimagine your vector drawings in a fresh new style. Just place an Imaginate frame over your layers and describe how it should end up looking.

Support the mission

You can help realize Graphite's ambitious vision of building the ultimate 2D creative tool. Graphite is built by a small, dedicated crew of volunteers in need of resources to grow.


Powerful proceduralism

The data-driven approach to design affords unique capabilities that are presently in-development.

Fully nondestructive editing with node-driven layers
Infinitely scalable raster content with no pixelation
Integrated generative AI models and graphics algorithms
Procedural pipelines for studio production environments

One app to rule them all

Stop jumping between programs. Planned features will make Graphite a first-class design tool for these disciplines (listed by priority):

Graphic Design
Image Editing
Digital Painting
Desktop Publishing
VFX Compositing
Motion Graphics
