Best Mouse for Designers

Best Mouse for Designers – Unless everything you do revolves around digital paintings, you’ll need more in your arsenal than just a tablet with a stylus. Using a mouse can be very comfortable and, in some situations, a must in order to tackle complex projects and work fast.

However, before making any big decision, it’s important to understand that mouses aren’t always compatible with multiple systems. You will need to get one that either works with a PC or a MAC.

Although the selection for Mac-compatible graphic design mouses is not impressive, you only need to find one that works and it just so happens that you can find it on this list.


PC mouses are a lot more versatile in the sense that they are highly configurable. But the driver software is not always compatible, and therefore the sensitivity settings and button assignments might be off.

Best Mouse for Designers – BUYER’S GUIDE

Figuring out which is the best mouse for you will depend on what you’re going to be using it for, but there are some common features that we look out for when considering what products to include in this list.

For a start, the best mice need to be ergonomic, so they are comfortable and safe to use for long periods of time. They also need to be fast, responsive and accurate; the key thing you’re looking for here is the mouse’s DPI. In general, the higher the DPI, the better it can read the surface you’re working on, so you don’t have to be tethered to a mouse mat and in some cases you can quite easily work on a smooth glass surface.

There are also some features that will depend entirely on use case. To cover all the bases, we’ve picked a wide range of options here. There are mice that are small and easy to carry around with you, to wireless wonders with all kinds of extra buttons and features, and everything in between.


As a designer, the two things to look for in a mouse is precision and ergonomics. After reviewing dozens of mice we recommend the Anker Vertical Mouse. Not only does it look good but the vertical design helps to eliminate wrist movement and strain. Key if you’re spending 10+ hrs a day on your computer.
