Akira: A Native Linux App
for UI & UX Design.
Akira is a native Linux Design application built in Vala and GTK. Akira focuses on offering a modern and fast approach to UI and UX Design, mainly targeting web designers and graphic designers. The main goal is to offer a valid and professional solution for designers who want to use Linux as their main OS.
Akira is set to have a heavy focus on UI prototyping, wireframing, and final design. It will be particularly helpful for web developers/designers in creating clean and high-quality mockups for their applications.
Akira is set to be completely free to use. Creator, Alessandro Castellani, states that there will be “no features locked behind a paywall, and no monthly subscriptions”.
Runs on Linux
The Linux community has been starved for a competitive alternative to a vector editor. Akira is the ideal, stripped-down version set with all the features you need and none of the bloat.
"Akira is free. No subscription, upgrade fees, and no features locked behind a paywall."
Developer & creator
Alex describes himself as a nerdy Italian guy living in Vancouver while exploring the world. He is a passionate designer, meticulous developer, and an unstoppable dreamer.

Alberto Fanjul – Developer, Software Engineer, GNOME foundation member, Gith maintainer
