Inkscape: the free alternative to Adobe Illustrator
Inkscape: the free alternative to Adobe Illustrator. Alistair Christie references two open source alternatives to Illustrator: Inkscape and Raven.

If you use these open source apps to create engaging diagrams and illustrations, employers probably won't care what tool you used. You demonstrate your skills using any tool to get the job done.
