My thanks to the Omni Group for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote OmniGraffle, their excellent Mac OS X graphics editor.

I’ll just come right out and say that OmniGraffle is my favorite app from Omni — I use it to create graphics for Daring Fireball such as the table in my Safari 4 review comparing tab colors. It is a very good tool for a startlingly wide range of tasks. It can be used to create both flowchart diagrams (backed by an outline) and layer-based graphic design layouts. It can be used by non-artists to create high-quality graphics (thanks to its built-in and third-party stencils), and by artists to create original design work with precise control over layout and typography. It’s also a great tool for user interface and web page design mockups.

Order OmniGraffle at the Omni Group’s store through 23 March 2009 and save 15 percent using the coupon code “GRAFFLE_FIREBALL”.
