I've been using SVGator for free for the past few weeks..how is Spirit better?
I've been fairly curious about this as well....
I liked it simple and to the point :)
definitely SVGator...OMG.... started using it about a week ago...it's really great....couldn't be happier with it... it's exactly what I've been looking for...
my first thought was that it looked like a 'dial' or something shown in extreme perspective. didn't really see the penis, til you mentioned it....then, barely. actually. nope. not at all. not really seeing a penis.
just looks like a badly attempted dial or something to me...
for what it's worth, you could tell them, 'ok.. I see what your going for here, and me and my team will riff on this and come up with something a bit slicker and more professional, as befits a non profit of your importance.'
was just wondering this myself... haven't done a whole lot of them in the past...but our company is now actively doing them...have just created a few in the past month, and would LOVE to see some examples of really great ones.

Incredible article. I've been wanting something like this for ages. The closest I've been able to find thus far (and I was surprised not to see it on your list) is Blocsapp https://blocsapp.com/
for the rest, I've been using Figma. while it doesn't export a final working file so to speak, the code it does create is well suited for our dev team, and the handoff with that has been excellent.
Still though...I hunger for something more :)
couldn't have said it better myself :)
I too graduated into a recession...
the whole year I was pounding the pavement, working crappy mcjobs to make ends meet, and mainly getting nothing but 'come back when you'e 'DONE' something style interviews... no one wanted a graduate...they wanted someone with experience, but no one was handing out the experience...
then, 'one fateful day' i handed my resume into a place that designed and printed billboards. ...not exactly the design job I was hoping for, but it was something... and the interview went really well...
over the next two weeks, I would phone every few days to talk to the designers that had interviewed me... luckily they weren't annoyed... and they hired me.
after a whole year of nothing, I suddenly had a decent job.
the 6 months I spent working there were amazing. and with the real-world experience, my portfolio went from 'student work' to actual real projects. The next leap came much easier.
in other words....NEVER give up... that's honestly the only difference between a successful designer and someone who isn't. JUST KEEP GOING!!!!!
it took me a solid year from Graduation to finding my first job. I was pretty depressed about how long it was taking, but I never gave up hope...just keep pushing...your time will come :) -definitely join up with whatever local design groups and meetups there are in your area... all the hints and tips listed here are TOP NOTCH! take advantage of what's being show and told to you here...this is some first rate stuff :)
