DrawPlus by Serif is a full-featured 2D vector graphics program, which also supports layers, pressure sensitivity, animation, and painting, all while retaining a vector object's ability to infinitely resize. Over 600 fonts are available as well. Though it is no longer in development, it retains a large user base due to its user-friendly layout and gentle learning curve.

With DrawPlus, you can create resizable logos, graphic elements, use Wacom pressure-sensitive tablets and pens, create and edit animations, and even create digital artwork using its oil, watercolor, chalk functions - and these just scratch the surface. DrawPlus also supports photo and image editing. You can even create animated GIFs.

DrawPlus is certainly an inexpensive way to get started with 2D vector graphics.

The latest version, DrawPlus X8, was released in 2015.
