Powerful graph design

A simple but huge time saver is the scaling behavior of Datylon graphs. Changing the size of the graph does keep all relevant properties intact like font and label sizes or line widths. This means graphs can easily be repurposed to fit in another layout or output channel without redrawing. This very robust feature outpowers Illustrator's built-in graph tool. Try it for free today!

What they say about Datylon

"The best thing about Datylon is the incredible level of customization that is possible for every chart. [...] It's easy to change colors, font sizing, data-point positioning, labels, etc."

- Anneka, Senior Graphic Designer

"The other products were either too data analysis centric or didn't have enough styling options.
I use Datylon as a designer, not as an analyst, so I really care about ease of creation, ease of editing and the overall look."

- Emily, Creative Director

"I feel like we (designers) finally have an easy-to-use tool that doesn't lack
the customizability and design aesthetic that other graph maker tools tend to have".

- Josh, Layout Designer

What is a graph?

A graph is a visual representation of data in a worksheet. Graphs are used to provide a better understanding of larger quantities of data or a correlation (relationship) between parts of data in a condensed and easy-to-understand manner. A graph is a form of a visual representation of data, which supports data explanation and makes it easy and fast to digest by the brain. In other words, we use graphs to convert data values from a datasheet into a nice visualization. Graphs make it apparent to find hidden information and insights that are otherwise hard to find from a table with data. This process helps improve data communication. There are many different graph types, and many of them can be created with our Graph Maker.
