Design engaging charts & reports.
Create the most captivating on-brand data visualizations right within Adobe® Illustrator®.
Build a stunning chart with the Datylon plugin for Illustrator, add annotations, titles or any illustration using Adobe’s most powerful drawing tools. Place multiple charts on a single artboard to create captivating data stories and export them to the Datylon web app as templates.
Create and use your own custom color palettes. Save time and use Illustrator's global colors feature to color multiple Datylon charts at once. For multi-purpose jobs including print output, CMYK color mode and spot colors will uplift your productivity and make your life much easier.
Work seamlessly with other Creative Cloud apps like InDesign and After Effects. For extensive paginated reports, import your Datylon charts in Indesign while keeping those charts up to date in Illustrator. Import Illustrator files with Datylon charts in After Effects and create animated charts in minutes.
Datylon charts can be combined with each other in Illustrator to create new exciting variants. These charts can be driven by one single workbook allowing to update the charts with just one click.
A simple but huge time saver is the scaling behavior of Datylon charts. Changing the size of the chart does keep all relevant properties intact like font and label sizes or line widths. This means charts can easily be repurposed to fit in another layout or output channel without redrawing.
"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

We store your data and visualizations in the Illustrator .ai files you edit. Your data and visualizations are not sent over the internet and the .ai file will be the only place where your data and visualizations are stored which means you have full data security control.
We need an internet connection to validate and activate your Datylon for Illustrator license when you start using Datylon for Illustrator for the first time. Thereafter no internet connection is needed any more and Datylon for Illustrator will function without internet connection till your license expires after which a new license check over the internet is needed.
If you save your data, charts or designs on Datylon's online dataviz platform, it will belong only to your account and you will have full control over it. We will treat your data as confidential while our system keeps all online user data in secure servers.
If you publish a project on our online dataviz platform, it can be accessed through a direct link with a unique ID. If you want to make sure nobody finds your visualizations, keep them unpublished and download them as PDFs, SVGs or images for private use.
