Arziro Design

Security design software

With the availability of new technologies, counterfeiting is on the rise, posing severe risks to businesses, governments and individuals worldwide. As a powerful security design tool that generates personalized, copy-proof elements, Arziro Design helps protect counterfeit-sensitive documents or items from forgery and lets high-security designers create realistic mock-ups for tenders.

Arziro Design runs as a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator, enabling in-house document or brand protection and full creative freedom in a known software environment. Pushing the boundaries of security design, complexity and discretion, Arziro Design users can choose from pre-defined parameters or create customized ones.

Version 6 of Arziro Design includes a Trafo Pattern Generator, a new tool for creating complex designs in a controlled way. Designers can now also generate a phantom image or object, a so-called latent image. In addition, version 6.0 adds the option to create variable designs with practically all tools, including the latent image tool, for brand protection and security prints. It allows the creation of endless variations for use on various digital presses.

Unique anti-forgery software

While many anti-counterfeiting efforts tend to overlook graphic design, Arziro Design acknowledges it as one of the most basic and important elements of document and brand protection. Inspired by high-security software, it incorporates the aspect of security into the initial step of document or product creation.

A multitude of design tools

Rather than using standard vector graphics software to create security elements – often time-consuming and definitely not copy-proof – opt for Arziro Design. It enables you to create complex and reliable security designs as well as realistic mock-ups of high-security documents.

Versions for Mac and PC

Running as a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator on Mac and PC, Arziro Design offers a straightforward and easy-to-use anti-counterfeiting solution. Image color conversions are performed on the fly, while settings are applied to the design in real-time and creations can be easily adapted, as they are regular Illustrator elements.

Suitable for many types of printing

Designs created using Arziro can be printing in offset, flexo, digital, and more, with various output resolutions.

Special Plus version available

Arziro comes in a Plus version that is specifically developed for government entities, certified security printers and designers.


Arziro offers greater flexibility as it easily integrates with additional software, such as Arziro Anti-Copy (availability depending on region).
