Gravit, a Berlin, Germany-based online vector design tool, raised a six digit seed funding.
German investor High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to enhance the product and launch a design marketplace.
Led by Alexander Adam, founder and CEO, Gravit has just launched its third major version offering features that will allow everyone, be it a beginner or a professional, to create such designs as a logo, a Facebook cover, or a website. Gravit also allows offers to save designs automatically in the cloud so they can be shared with other users and user groups. People can view and comment on the designs and even edit them, a workflow similar to the one that Google Docs currently offers.
The platform is free, offers basic features that are catered to those who are not familiar with design software, as well as advanced features for professionals. It provides 500 MB of storage space for free.
