Note: This tutorial was aboriginal arise on Smashing Magazine.
Being a artist at the moment is abundant because a abundance of avant-garde architecture applications are accessible that let you calmly accompany your annual to the screen. One app that is absolutely new, though — and conceivably a bit overlooked — is the chargeless Gravit Artist app. Gravit gives you all of the accoutrement bare to actualize anatomic and affected awning designs. It can additionally be acclimated to accomplish icons, designs for print, presentations and abundant more.
With the contempo absolution of adaptation 3.1, it’s gotten alike better: Now you can acceptation your Sketch files into Gravit, save designs locally or accompany them to Gravit Cloud, and get started bound with architecture templates. Gravit is currently free, works on all aloft OS platforms and is accessible as both a web and desktop (standalone) app.
Every new apparatus can feel alarming at the beginning. So, in this tutorial I will airing you through the conception of a accurate acclimate app (designed by Claudia Driemeyer). You can download the architecture book to audit it or use it as the abject of your own work. (Please bethink that you charge to baddest “View” → “View Mode” → “Output View,” so that the overflowing genitalia of the architecture are abrupt aback you initially accessible the architecture in Gravit.)
The aboriginal affair you will see aback you accessible Gravit Artist is the alpha screen, with a ample addition of presets (see amount 2). For the purpose of this tutorial, let’s alpha with the “Nexus 5” template, which has the accepted admeasurement of 360 × 640 pixels. (Click and baddest the arrangement from the dropdown.) If you don’t appetite to absolute your imagination, you can additionally leave the “width” and “height” fields at the top empty, which will actualize an absolute canvas; activity for a fixed-dimension canvas afterwards will be easy: Aloof access amplitude and acme values.
This antecedent awning additionally lets you accessible files (either from Gravit Cloud or from your computer) and alpha from a addition of templates.
After accepting called the “Nexus 5” preset, you will be presented with a new “page” (known as an artboard in added architecture applications) at the center. The folio will authority all of the elements of the proposed app. Because it’s an app about acclimate and a abeyant user should see the accepted altitude at a glance, let’s alpha with a full-sized accomplishments image. I’ve able a backing image, which you can either save to your computer and annoyance it to the canvas from there, or archetype and adhesive anon from the browser.
This angel will actualize the aboriginal access in the Layers console (on the left), and it will additionally be placed in the centermost breadth of Gravit Designer, on the canvas (figure 3). In case the angel hasn’t been centered to the page, right-click and baddest “Align” → “Align Center,” followed by “Align Middle.” Alternatively, you can annoyance the angel until the blush acute guides appearance you this centered position.
Now, about-face to the Pointer apparatus (press V), authority Shift and Alt both to constrain the arrangement of the angel and to resize it from the center, and annoyance out the bottom-right handle. It should accept a amplitude of about 415 pixels, arresting from “Size” → “W” in the Inspector, the right-hand console of Gravit Artist (figure 3). The angel will overflow the folio now — to blow it, baddest “View” → “View Mode” → “Output view.” Addition accessible advantage actuality is “Outline View,” which shows the outlines of the layers only.
Note: Usually, accretion bitmap images is not a acceptable idea, but as we will be abashing the angel afterwards on, this is not so important.
Now is a acceptable time to save our file. The best way is to save it to Gravit Cloud with the accompanying advantage in “File” in the card bar, which makes it accessible everywhere and on all devices. Appetite to alpha the architecture in the Mac app and accumulate alive in the browser or on Windows? No problem. You aloof charge to actualize an account, which is alone a amount of abnormal (you can apprehend added about Gravit Cloud in my overview on Medium). For the book name, use article like weather-app.
The added option, of course, is to save the book to your computer with “Save to file…” (from the desktop app version) or “Download File…” (from the web app adaptation of Gravit).
Let’s abide with the cachet bar of the app, whose basal appearance is a rectangle. Columnist R to about-face to the Rectangle tool, alpha to draw in the top-left corner, go all the way to the right, and accomplish it 24 pixels high.
Note: All of these accoutrement (such as the Pointer apparatus mentioned a little earlier) can additionally be accessed from the toolbar at the top of Gravit Artist (figure 3)
In case you didn’t get the appropriate ambit for the rectangle, you can additionally access them in the Inspector (the amplitude should be “360.”) The acumen we chose absolutely 24 pixels is that we will be appliance an 8-point grid, which prevents an approximate adjustment and allocation of elements. You can affectation the filigree from “View” → “Show Grid” or by acute Alt Command G (or, on Windows and Linux, Alt Control G). The absolute filigree admeasurement can be set in the Inspector (“Grid” → “Width and Height”) already you bang anywhere alfresco the page — use “8” for both fields.
Select the rectangle afresh with a click, and change the blush to white. You can do so by beat on the blush acreage in “Fills” in the Inspector (figure 4, callout 1), which will accompany up the blush dialog, with abounding altered options. For now, either annoyance the blush picker to the top-left (figure 4, callout 2) or baddest white from the swatches in the bottom-right (figure 4, callout 3). To let the accomplishments angel flash through, set the “Opacity” to 50%. Instead of accomplishing that in the blush dialog, abutting it, and access this amount aloof aloft the “Fills” breadth in the Inspector.
Note: The caliginosity affects the all-around accuracy of the layer, while the “A” acreage (alpha) in the blush chat sets the caliginosity of alone the accepted fill. This is abnormally important because you can add assorted fills with the “ ” amount on the right. To annul a ample again, baddest it with a bang and columnist the debris bin (delete) icon.
Back to the cachet bar: The abutting aspect will be the time, a white argument band with a admeasurement of 12 pixels. To add it, about-face to the Argument apparatus with T, bang in the centermost of the rectangle, and address “14:00” for archetype (figure 5). Aback done, columnist Esc, set the “Size” to “12” and the chantry face to “Open Sans” with a “Bold” weight in the Inspector.
Note: Gravit Artist comes with a advanced addition of fonts, but you can additionally accompany in your own fonts with “File” → “Import” → “Add fonts…” in the web version; in the desktop app, all fonts on your arrangement can be acclimated out of the box.
Select the time forth with the rectangle (hold Shift and bang on both), and centermost them to anniversary other. You can either right-click and baddest “Align” → “Align Center” and “Align Middle” or use the alignment icons in the top-right — in particular, the fourth and seventh icons from the left. Addition advantage would be to annoyance the time until the blush acute guides appearance you this centered position. At the moment, the argument band is almost visible, so we will amusement the accomplishments angel afore continuing with the blow of the cachet bar’s elements.
First, actualize addition full-width rectangle, starting from the top-left, with a acme of 376 pixels. Access the blush chat and, instead of a solid fill, baddest the additional advantage at the top, a beeline acclivity (figure 6). It will be created angular by default, activity from the larboard to the right. What we want, however, is a vertical gradient, so bang on the annular arrow pointing to the appropriate alert to amphitheater it clockwise. The starting blush stop of the acclivity should still be selected — change its blush to #070031 in the “Hex” field. For the added acclivity stop, you can use the aforementioned blush but with 0% alpha.
To alloy it in with the image, bang anywhere on the rectangle to abutting the blush dialog, and baddest “Soft Light” from “Blending” appropriate aloft the “Fills” breadth in the Inspector.
Note: As with the caliginosity of a layer, there is a “general” blending, which affects the absolute aspect and how it blends with altar abaft it, and a “separate” aggregate for anniversary fill, which aloof affects how the assorted fills collaborate with anniversary other.
For an alike stronger effect, carbon this band with Shift Command D (on Windows and Linux, Shift Control D). Rename the aboriginal rectangle to “Overlay 1” with a double-click in the Layers panel, and the additional to “Overlay 2,” baddest both afterwards captivation Shift, and annoyance them beneath the added white band (the accomplishments of the cachet bar). Finally, lock them with a bang on the lock attribute so that you don’t baffle with them by blow afterwards on.
Now to the accomplishments angel itself. Gravit Artist enables you to anon abuse the colors of a bitmap afterwards defective to abatement aback on addition application. Baddest the image, bang on “Color Adjust” in the Inspector, and change the “Brightness” to “-17%,” the “Contrast” to “27%” and the “Saturation” to “10%” (figure 7). Looks way better, and the time already comes to the fore. Besides this blush correction, you accept abounding added filters with which to adapt bitmaps. Bang on “More” at the basal of the Inspector, which will appearance you a absolute account of furnishings to accept from. Be abiding additionally to bang on the dropdown at the top.
Back to the accomplishments image, breadth we charge to fix one aftermost detail: applying a “Blur” with a “Radius” of “17” (figure 7). To accomplish the white band of the cachet bar bigger alloy in with the accomplishments image, you can additionally set its “Blending” to “Soft Light” in the Inspector.
Important: Accumulate in apperception that furnishings such as becloud can apathetic bottomward Gravit Artist considerably. If you acquaintance this, about-face off the furnishings briefly with “View → Appearance Effects” (on a Mac, Command E, and on Windows and Linux, Control E).
Before we abide with the added elements of the cachet bar, baddest its absolute genitalia (the time argument band and accomplishments rectangle), and columnist Command G (on Windows and Linux, Control G) to accumulation them, and name this accumulation “Status bar” by double-clicking. This lets you baddest the absolute group, but you can still aces alone elements by captivation Command (on Windows and Linux, Control) and beat on a layer. The aforementioned behavior will be enabled with “Click-through this element” in the Inspector.
A accessible addition to appliance a accumulation is to use a alleged “layer.” (Do not abash this with a accepted layer, which is an alone aspect on the canvas and in the Layers panel.) Add such a band with a bang on the “New Layer” amount (figure 8, callout 1) in the Layers panel. Aloof like with a group, such a band (group) additionally allows you to amalgamate elements but has the afterward advantages:
If you like, you can add a band and annoyance the elements from the accumulation in there (and annul the now abandoned “Status bar” accumulation with Backspace (or, Windows and Linux, Delete).
The abutting aspect for the cachet bar is the amount for the accept arresting (see amount 9 for the process). We’ve fatigued some afflatus from iOS’ amount actuality with its circles — and although that’s absolutely a adverse from the archetypal Android design, it’s the absolute befalling to appearance the acute alike affection of Gravit Artist (more on that in a minute).
Press E to about-face to the Ellipse tool, authority Shift to accomplish it a absolute circle, and add a aboriginal amphitheater with a bore of 6 on the left. About-face off the filigree with Alt Command G(on Windows and Linux, Alt Control G). Accord it a white fill.
If you’re accepting agitation creating such a baby element, you can additionally add it at a bigger admeasurement and afresh accompany it bottomward to 6 × 6 appliance the Inspector. Aloof be abiding that “Keep Ratio” (the baby amount amid the amplitude and acme fields) is enabled. Alternatively, columnist Zto about-face to the Zoom apparatus and annoyance a addition in the top-left of the folio to enlarge this area.
Getting to the added four circles is easy. First, columnist Command D (on Windows and Linux, Control D) to alike the element. Afresh annoyance it up, so that it is at the aforementioned acme as the added amphitheater and has a ambit of 1 pixel (the blush acute guides advice here). Afterwards that, columnist Command D afresh to actualize three added instances at the aforementioned distance. This “smart duplicate” affection works for all kinds of transformations, such as rotations, and consistently repeats all of the accomplish amid the aboriginal and additional duplication.
The aberration amid alike (Mac: Command D, Windows and Linux: Control D) and carbon (Mac: Shift Command D, Windows and Linux: Shift Control D) is that the above offsets the new band by 10 pixels in anniversary administration (X, Y) and allows for acute duplication. The closing doesn’t.
Let’s accept the arresting isn’t the best over here. So, baddest the aftermost two circles and administer a bound instead of a fill. Bang on the eye amount on the appropriate ancillary of the ample to attenuate it, and instead add a bound with the “ ” amount in the “Borders” breadth below. Also, accord it a white color.
This absence centered bound isn’t suitable, however, so change it to an central blazon by beat on the “Advanced achievement settings” on the right. There, change the “Position” to the aboriginal icon. For the bound width, aces “0.5.”
There are several means to change a amount in an ascribe acreage in Gravit:
For our border, the easiest way is to authority Alt and columnist the bottomward arrow key bristles times on the keyboard. (With the acceleration of high-resolution adaptable devices, it’s apparently OK to use a half-pixel amount here, because it will still arise aciculate aback exported.)
Finally, baddest all circles and accomplish the afterward steps:
The abutting aspect we will accouterment is the carrier name (figure 10). Pan a bit to the appropriate (hold the amplitude bar and drag), baddest the time argument layer, authority Alt and annoyance it to the larboard to actualize a duplicate. Accomplish abiding that it’s 6 pixels abroad from the accept signal, change the argument to “Gravit,” and the weight to Regular. Do the aforementioned for the array akin indicator, but annoyance it to the right, with “75%” as the agreeable (figure 10). Bethink that you can columnist Esc to leave text-editing mode. Of course, we could booty a premade amount for the array symbol, but breadth is the fun in that? Let’s accord it a try (figure 11).
The aboriginal aspect is a simple rectangle (24 × 10) with a white central bound of 0.5 and angled corners of “1.” (You can add the angled corners in “Corners” in the “Appearance” breadth of the Inspector.)
Clone this rectangle with Shift Command D (on Windows and Linux, Shift Control D), move it to the larboard and bottomward by 1 pixel with the arrow keys, and change the admeasurement so that it’s 2 pixels abate in anniversary dimension.
Please agenda that Gravit Artist supports algebraic operations in ascribe fields, so you can use “ 5,” for example, to add 5 to the accepted value, or “*3” to accumulate by 3. In our case, access “24–2” for the “Width” in the Inspector, and “10–2” for the “Height,” and columnist “Enter” to get to the adapted dimensions.
This additional appearance should accept a white fill, afterwards a border. Additionally carbon it, move it to the appropriate so that its larboard bend touches the appropriate bend of the belted shape, and change the admeasurement to 1.5 × 4. Centermost it angular to the added shapes.
The third appearance has angled corners on all abandon now, but we alone appetite them on the appropriate side, so we charge to access the “Advanced Settings” on the right. Uncheck “Uniform Corners” so that you can access “0” for the top-left and bottom-left corner, and 0.5 for the top-right and bottom-right pendants. Baddest all three rectangles, amalgamate them into a “Battery” accumulation and annoyance it into the “Status bar.” Accomplish abiding that it is 2 filigree units (16 pixels) abroad from the appropriate bend of the page, angular centered to the cachet bar, and that the array akin has a gap of 6 pixels to it.
There’s one aftermost affair to administer for the cachet bar: the Wi-Fi arresting indicator (figure 12). We can access it in two ways. First, a white rectangle. Actualize one abutting to the “Gravit” argument layer, with a admeasurement of 9 × 9 (hold Shift to actualize a square). About-face it by 45 degrees, either in the Inspector (“Angle” → “R”) or by avaricious the top-most handle on the canvas and captivation Shift to constrain the movement to 15-degree steps.
Now we charge to catechumen it to a aisle (Mac: Shift Command P, Windows and Linux: Shift Control P, or right-click → “Convert to Path”), so that we are able to dispense its alone points. Change to the Subselect apparatus (press D), baddest the top-most point and bang on the additional amount at “Joint” in the Inspector. This will catechumen the above “Straight” point, with no curve, to an analogously angled “Mirror” point. Access the ambit a bit by boring out either of the handles to the abandon of the point while captivation Shift (to accumulate the movement horizontal), and move it 3 pixels bottomward with the keyboard. Goal accomplished!
Note: The aberration amid the Pointer apparatus (V) and the Subselect apparatus (D) is that the above selects absolute shapes or layers, while the closing is mainly acclimated to dispense an alone point or to appearance added abetment options.
The additional access for the Wi-Fi amount would be with the Bezigon apparatus (figure 12). Accumulate the amount we aloof created as a reference, but accent it bottomward to an caliginosity of 40% in the Inspector. Now, accredit the Bezigon apparatus from the “Path” breadth in the toolbar (or columnist B) and accomplish a aboriginal bang at the bottom-most point of the added Wi-Fi symbol. Accomplish addition bang at the left-most point, afresh abide to the top-most point, but authority Alt afore you click.
This move is abnormally basic with the Bezigon apparatus because it creates a ambit that automatically adapts to the surrounding points. Abide at the right-most point, but absolution Alt again, and accomplishment the appearance with a bang on the aboriginal point at the bottom. You can see how a point that was created with an Alt bang of the Bezigon apparatus adapts automatically if you baddest the top-most point with the Subselect apparatus (D) and annoyance it around.
Keep the adaptation of the amount you like, centermost it angular to the cachet bar, and move it abroad 6 pixels from the “Gravit” argument layer. Finally, rename it to “WiFi” afore you annoyance it into the “Status bar” group. With this aftermost step, we’ve accomplished the cachet bar and can about-face to the capacity of the app.
The aboriginal aspect actuality is the accepted date (“Friday, Jun 15”), a white argument band with a admeasurement of 18 pixels and a “Regular” weight (figure 13). Zoom out to 100% afresh with Command 0 (on Windows and Linux, Control 0), so that the adjustment becomes easier. Centermost the argument band to the folio and abode it on a filigree line, about 36 pixels abroad from the cachet bar. Authority Alt and annoyance it to the basal to actualize addition argument band for the location. Double-click so that you can change it to “Berlin”; for the argument size, accept “38.” It should additionally sit on a filigree band appropriate beneath the date and be centered to the page.
The final argument band we charge now is for the temperature (“21 °C”). Proceed as before, but for the chantry size, you can artlessly add “*2” to the accepted amount of the ascribe acreage and columnist Enter, which will bifold the size. It should be about 28 pixels abroad from the added layer.
With this ends the aboriginal allotment of the tutorial. I achievement you accept enjoyed it so far and that it has accustomed you admired acumen into Gravit Designer, its appearance and what it can do.
In the additional part, we will attending at some added adult techniques, see how we can accomplish the acclimate icons to actualize a adaptation of the app with brilliant weather, and apprentice how to consign the final design.
If you accept questions apropos this tutorial, amuse leave a animadversion beneath and I will acquiescently advice you. And if you accept annual on how Gravit Artist could be added improved, don’t alternate to ability out to the Gravit aggregation on Twitter or on Facebook, or column your questions and annual in the Gravit altercation board. Your acknowledgment would be added than welcome!
