Why Expressive?

Postby vaa » Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:30 am

What were/are your arguments in favour of Expressive as against other vector-software? How does it compare with other projects? Did you compare, why should this project be favoured? Etc. Looking forward! :-)

Well, this is easy answered. There are many vector apps on the market already (on the Mac side they all are cocoa/quartz based) who can not support CMYK color mode. Some promising projects mainly on Linux have the same problem. Inkscape and Skencil are still RGB based, sK1 is a fork of Skencil which will make it prepress ready including CMYK but all are far from the user experience you know from FreeHand.

We have asked some developers of existing apps if they would make it more FreeHand'ish, and nevertheless they are interested in such input, they can only go small steps into our direction.

Expressive is the only project which has specifically a FreeHand experience as goal and aims for this from the very beginning.

I'm interested to know why the name Expressive was chosen. It's quite similar to Microsoft's Expression. I'm not sure if that's a question or a statement. I did a quick search and see some like the idea of linking the name to QuarkXpress.

Just a side note: we've started the project under that name already in year 1999 when there was no ms expression at all :-) furthermore we own all trademarks on the name expressive yay! :-)

ajbis, I do. QXP (or was it Macromedia?! I'm not sure) used to have a companion a while ago – a pixel-editor with a then rather innovative, and never since duplicated concept (nondestructive post-processing rendering-based image handling, I'd describe it). A similar concept is integrated in Quark. QXP also started to sport vector editing a few versions ago – not ideal for a FH user, but with a familiar feel and simple. So…

Wasn't this Macromedia Fireworks?
