Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphic editing program that can be used to produce rich graphic design elements that can be scaled to sizes appropriate for a wide array of web and print applications. It is commonly used to create logos, illustrations, mockups, and design elements for websites and print designs.

Is Illustrator Right for Me?

  • Illustrator can be used to create appealing graphics and designs without requiring a mastery of traditional artistic techniques like painting or drawing.
  • Vector graphics are scalable to suit any purpose, from small design elements in mobile applications to billboard-size graphics, without losing quality.
  • Illustrator is an industry standard tool in many fields. However, it is only available on a subscription basis and no free tier exists.
