How to Draw a Phone Quickly in Inkscape

You can draw a phone quickly with only using Rectangular Tool in Inkscape. There are 4 total objects and what you need to do is to round the corner correctly.

Since this is a flat illustration we dont have to draw it so detail but clear enough to represent the image.

First Rectangle

Create a rectangle using Rectangular Tool (F4). Just make it like normal phone size in your canvas.

1. first rectangular

Drag the round handle on the corner to the bottom a little bit. Or as you see on my object properties: Rx: 0.000 Ry. 5.888

Second Rectangle

Create another rectangle as the screen. Draw it like the first one but smaller. You don’t need to round this one.

Third Rectangle

The third rectangle will represent the speaker. So we will just need to create a little rectangle above the screen object. Make the rectangle extends to the side.

The object position doesn’t have to be so centre since we have to put the last object beside it. But most phone actually have it right in the centre so you can put it as you like.

If you want to make it in the centre you can use Align and Distribute (Ctrl+Shift+A) to make it symmetrical. Choose Centre on Vertical Axis.
