For several years, the tools offered by Adobe within its Creative Cloud package are practically something fixed in any design studio. And Adobe Illustrator is one more. Maybe a while ago there was some equity between this and Corel Draw. Or even if we go back much further, we find the sadly missing FreeHand. But currently, the use and management of Adobe Illustrator is almost a must if we are graphic designers. Nowadays, we can use Illustrator in both Windows and macOS.
Adobe Illustrator for the Graphic Designer
- Illustrator and its specific functions for tablets
In this field, nowadays, Illustrator has no rival. Practically, it is a standard in the graphic design industry. It has a huge community behind, so it will not be difficult for us to find a solution to any problem we find when we work. In fact, in SiloCreativo we have published some Illustrator tutorials, about isometric design or pattern creation. In addition to a large number of plugins to expand its already huge functionality. Also in recent years has added new systems to facilitate its use in tablets, so draw in Illustrator is easier than ever.
- Adobe Illustrator for the Web Designer
Although many users use it as software for web design and UI, it is neither ideal nor has the right tools for this type of projects. We can not anchor objects with respect to the margins of our work table, nor modify their dimensions when we change width. In fact, Adobe knows perfectly well about this lack and currently has Adobe Experience Design, or Adobe XD, in beta. With this application, we will have all that Adobe Illustrator lacks to create functional prototypes of our web. Unfortunately, this beta is only available for Windows, so if you are not users of this OS, you will have to wait for the phase to open for macOS, or launch a final version for both systems.
