thumbEver wondered which are the most popular design tools and their number of users? We did too!

So we partnered with Mostash to create an exclusive infographic depicting the 20 most popular design tools, calculated using a 'magic' formula based on the results taken from three different popularity ranking websites.

We used the stats from Software Informer, Wakoopa and iUseThis. For the number of tweets per minute, that you'll see below, we used the wonderful Twitter Tussle.

The artwork was done by Ricardo Cavolo (all credits appear at the bottom).

Surprised by the results? Some tools that we were expecting to see in the top 20 are actually way down below...
