Top 20 Mac App Store Apps for Graphic Designers

The Mac OS App Store has more and more to offer graphic designers looking for productivity software for their Mac. However, that means there is more and more to wade through to find the good stuff, just like when looking for iPhone apps. But hold on! We did the hard work and research and found a combination of the highest-rated but also most useful apps for graphic designers!

You won’t find any crayon coloring programs, goofy logo-makers, tacky stationary templates and what-not. We picked all of the best-rated apps, starting with 5 stars, and worked our way down.

There is a lot to pick from, but we hope you can make use of a few of the gems we found below. Happy apping!

    Personally, I enjoy DotMatrix/pOpOp in addition to Pixelmator and a couple of the other tools listed here. You can’t really call it a “graphic design tool”, but if you can accept a shameless plug, try my FaceBoof! app
