“As soon as I used the trial for 5 minutes, it got a place in my iMac’s dock.”
“I’m having a blast utilizing these magical grids in my graphic design work. What a blessing.” (Mike A.)
“Love the app. Using it to edit my photos often results in striking improvement.” (Warren L.)
“I think that it is perfect the way it is. I love how it is there when I need and not intrusive when I don’t. Very much like a tool instead of software.”
“This is an amazing tool, so powerful, thank you for providing this and at such a humble cost.”
“Products like this should be taught in schools.”
“How could you use this fundamental principle of design? Compositions for photography, interior decorating, maybe a new business card? For about $20, PhiMatrix Software is insanely fun and helpful.”
“I came across PhiMatrix and am finding it superb software. PhiMatrix installs easily, has a clean, user-friendly interface, and features are perfect for applying the grid to a wide-range of subjects.”
“I like it very much. Thanks. Your matrix will save me lots of time with photographs.”
“PhiMatrix is the best, most versatile and useful Phi software software out there, in my opinion, because it is a very practical and inspiring ‘Phi-explorer and applicator’. Can’t imagine any improvements I would need.”
“I’ve bought PhiMatrix earlier today. Tried the trial last night, but I just had to have the full version after analyzing some of my favorite logos and realizing that they all use the Fibonacci sequence to a T. I liked how I could add any number of H/V lines to the grid, so I’m not stuck with a default setup like in other similar software. Plus, the ability to lock the grid, so I can still paint under it in Photoshop without moving it around, sealed my decision. I have to say, this is the best and most customizable program of its kind I have used! Was well worth the purchase.” (David R.)
“I am a landscape painter and use your software as a composition tool. I paint from my own photos and find the various grids and diagonals really useful in seeing movement and patterns that weren’t obvious right away. I probably don’t use the the full array of tools available, but the ones I have come to rely on were too essential to give up when I got a new computer. Every one of the most works since 2014 was composed with the help of your software, so thanks again.” (Judith C.)
“It’s a fabulous program. Thank you. I use it for my graphics, photography, architectural design and even sketching. If I have an idea for a painting composition, I might scan my sketch and test it against its patterns.” (Sean P.)
I love this app you created. I go across a few disciplines with my work and studies. Your software is a Godsend to help be get my camera angles and my interior and exterior spaces correct. (Cougar W-O.)
“I give this software 5/5. Good presentation, simple and very easy to use operations makes it a No.1 software.”
“Great tool to help with compositional decisions.”
“As a graphic design and photography student, I find PhiMatrix to be of a great help in my studies. When you are first starting out, a blank page can be a daunting prospect, but PhiMatrix helps me by providing a foundation from which to build on, a malleable guide; so that I can relax and allow my creativity to run rampant. PhiMatrix also helps me make decisions faster on things like image to white space ratio, typography settings, placement of text columns in relation to headers, cropping photos for maximum impact, and helps me to maintain a consistent rhythm across multi-page projects. I highly recommend PhiMatrix to all students who also, at times, find themselves grappling with the horrors of an empty canvas..!” (Laurel “Loz” B.)
“I was looking for a basic program that would give me the Golden spiral. I really appreciated all the layout options your software provided.”
“I love the idea of what could potentially come out of this …”
“I love that it aids me in placement and in making my images more appealing. Top notch.”
“Indeed, the program itself is highly appreciated. You deserve more than appreciation. It is so useful and convenient to use. Thanks again.” (Jin K., 9/2015)
“I like the software and I love how it is evolving.” (Nikola N.)
“I love this tool. Thank you very much for inventing it.” (Cougar W.)
“Love the product! Glad to see you are still actively developing it. I am a UI/UX designer primarily and I use PhiMatrix for simple (non-phi related) tasks like making sure different text elements are aligned as well as (phi-related) tasks like using it to help me layout wireframes / designs for sites. I could fiddle around all day with how wide a website column should be, but if I use PhiMatrix I immediately get it right most of the time. I am a pretty visual person so when I ‘see it’ I know it’s right. This app gets me there faster and is unobtrusive to my workflow. I also will break it out when I’m looking at just about anything I find visually appealing, and wouldn’t you know it, I can almost always find the phi ratio in there somewhere. I have also used PhiMatrix for digital photographic purposes, primarily to make great-looking crops from large photos.” (Matt S.)
“Your PhiMatrix has been a beautiful tool. Now I may indeed find some variations that FXCM does not offer.” (Dick M.)
“I use Phimatrix for interface design. Mainly, web design and I found it useful in logo design and typography as well.” (Adrian W.)
“I’m so excited about this software. I overlaid this painting of mine and was pleased with the divisions. My goal is to compose all my paintings using this software.” (Collayne M.)
“Great product!!” (Andy H.)
“I use this fantastic program a lot. I’m a landscape designer and click on PhiMatrix to check my designs. (Enrique N.)
“I use Phimatrix for all of my design work, both product design and graphic design – it’s like having a fresh set of eyes, helps me see and structure proportions, grids and layouts (and find creative ways to break them when needed.)” (Martti L.)
“I really appreciate the software that you have developed. I am not a builder or an architect however I am designing a commercial premises and will take the design to a builder for completion. Your product is great for giving lay people like myself the opportunity to be introduced to all the different variants of phi and how they can be applied to a practical project.” (Nikolas T.)
“I find PhiMatrix most useful for layout planning.” (Jeff M.)
“As an artist and one who is fascinated with nature, your software is absolutely wonderful.” (Victor G.)
“Wonderful software. PhiMatrix has proven to be an invaluable tool in my work as architectural designer. It quickly aids composition when you know something just isn’t quite right. Priceless!” (Steve W.)
“First and foremost, I love your product, it is a wonderful tool.” (Christopher T.)
“The PhiMatrix Pro software fills a huge need for composition. Phi Matrix is rock-solid, the grid is flexible to the pixel, and covers such a wide range of functions in such a little, convenient interface that’s hard to believe it does so much. Any function you can think of that you might need with composition grids, the developers thought about it and implemented it. I am always reticent about buying new software impulsively, however I directly bought it after trying it (Mac version) for 5 minutes and never regretted it, quite the contrary! And as a bonus, they offer this great quick-to-answer and friendly support.” (Louis-Bernard S.)
Personally, as a self-taught visual artist I use it weekly to prepare, correct and confirm compositions on canvas, before while and after painting, as well to help me study the works of the old masters to better understand how they worked. And now, I use it not only for the art, but also for designing a brochure, invitation cards, arranging a portrait or a social media image etc.
It’s by far the best all-in-one solution that simply cannot be found anywhere else, even in high-end professional software plug-ins or extensions.
“For the past 6 months I have been putting together a collection of talks about presenting. This being the case, my own delivery is under additional scrutiny and I want everything to be as close to perfection as I can get – and that includes having knock-out slides. Like most people, my sense of design is visceral – so I know when something looks/feels good ..but I don’t always know how to get there when starting with a blank canvas. PhiMatrix has been ENORMOUSLY useful to me and has catapulted my ability to produce professional looking slides with perfect placement & layout … in many ways it’s like having a bionic eye for design! 😉 I truly wish that I properly understood the maths behind golden ratio geometry & proportions but in truth I do not – but the nice thing is that your app means I can still get great results even though my own ability is lacking, surely the mark of any great software! Thank you for producing such a brilliantly effective product :-)” (Mark)
“I am a Web/Graphic Designer and I consider myself a pixel guy. There are symmetries everywhere and this program has helped me visualize things which essentially adds more meaning to my designs. … I love the program. I think it is a great tool to have, especially when you see things on a whole new level and this program has achieved that goal for me. I am glad to have found the program online and be able to experience the beauty of design, -The Golden Ratio-” (Wilson D.)

“We, the designers of the Stavridis Group, are passionate believers in the beauty and applications of phi and have been avid users of the PhiMatrix tool for years. The PhiMatrix tool enabled our design team to produce some beautiful artwork over the years. Because the PhiMatrix product integrates so well in our design philosophy, you’ll be pleased to know that we use it in all the creative work we deliver and across all types of media daily. Our website at www.stavridisgroup.com.au is a living example of this. The product support you’ve recently gave us over the internet with the new PhiMatrix 1.618 was equally fantastic. We are very impressed. So we’ve decided to drop a line to say “well done” in developing such a phine product that is so easy to use and thank you for all your phirendly support and phintastic service.”
Mr. Chris Stavridis (BSc, MSc), Managing Director of Stavridis Group (Australia)
“Phi is a lot more interesting (than the rule of thirds) because it can be used to generate structures which are intuitively and innately harmonious, or look simply natural and ‘right’. With Phi you can sub-divide an image in many different ways e.g. each half divides into Phi ratio, and each portion can be sub-divided according to Phi ratios. The amazing and wonderful thing is that when you apply these sub-divisions to natural forms as diverse as butterfly wings, animal faces and human faces, you’ll find major features are mapped to the main Phi divisions, which suggests Phi is based on fundamental ways in which structures are generated. This is a far cry from the the simplistic Rule of Thirds. I always say that if you want your pictures to look the same as everyone else’s, follow the same rules as they do.”
“I was just notified that two of my pics were accepted for a large juried competition!!! Both images utilized your program. Way to go.”

Product review in The Socionomist
PhiMatrix is a phi-based grid that stays on top of any image on your monitor. (Traders will recognize many of its functions as similar to the Fibonacci relationship grids in financial software.) The compact control panel offers a range of features that enables the user to customize the size, shape, color, opacity, and ratios of the grid; most of the controls are mouse driven as well. Preloaded patterns measure proportions in rectangles, circles, triangles and various diagonals. A variety of grid ratio options make it possible to explore not only phi but also the square root of phi, the cube root of phi, phi squared, the Fibonacci series, the Levin Dental Grid and the root rectangles. PhiMatrix enables users to copy previously analyzed images as well as discover for themselves phi relationships in nature, art and architecture. You can save your work with notes. I found PhiMatrix easy to use, and it fulfilled my expectations of today’s software.

Art and Composition
It’s great fun to play with Phimatrix. I’m about to feature new artists on the Museum of the Golden Ratio home page and would like to also feature PhiMatrix. I usually don’t promote anything on the museum site, but I’m making an exception since it relates directly to the works of artists I’m showing.
“I’m an old customer an I have purchased PhiMatrix several times, refer many people to you and continue doing so.”
Carlos Wolf, Forex Trading Instructor and President of FxTectips, who recommends PhiMatrix to all his students.
Comments from other users
“It really is such a great program; when painting a piece for a while I will often struggle to see the wood for the trees and would often use the age old methods to get a fresh eye such as turning the work upside down or look at it through a mirror. So apart from aiding initial composition, PhiMatrix offers another great way to assess the progress of a painting.”
“Fantastic program if you are into sacred geometry etc.”
“Great tool to help with compositional decisions.”
“I am able to arrange my compositions using PhiMatrix and my sketches/photos. PhiMatrix makes the process simple and effective.”
“Congratulations on your effort in making a fine program.”

“Thanks for your software. It’s the greatest help for my art job.”
“This is a wonderful tool you have developed.”
“I love this program.”
“This is such a wonderful idea.”
“This program is fantastic.”
“I use the PhiMatrix for my currency trading, was taught to use it on charts since there is such extensive use of the Fibonacci sequence in trading.”
