At its core, “boolean” is a logic term that can be either “true” or “false,” and is commonly used in computer programming. In terms of graphics design, the meaning is quite similar.
We use “boolean” to describe how shapes are combined, using values such as “and”, “or,” “not,” or a combination of these. Getting too technical? Simply put, Boolean operations are a very powerful tool for any product or graphic design project. A complicated-looking shape can be constructed in no time using the five Boolean operations present in Vectornator, namely Union, Subtract, Intersect, Divide, and Exclude.
