Adobe Illustrator

Illustrator CC is an excellent tool for branding projects - often the only software needed for logos, brand patterns, illustrations, etc. While InDesign is better suited for longer documents, Illustrator is often perfect for cards, flyers and brochures. Its vector-based model makes it ideal for efficiently creating large graphics like trade show displays or billboards (until actual file dimensions need to exceed 200 inches).
Illustrator is a useful illustration tool (no surprise there!), but exclusive use of Illustrator can be limiting to creativity and more natural illustration styles. It is also a good tool for web mockups, although Sketch (and Adobe XD) is definitely stronger in that field now.

Infogram

It can replace excel graphs for more powerful and brilliant presentations either static or online.
It is very easy, just copy paste raw excel information to the data sheet in infogram and your grap is built in a snap.
Not so god when you edit the data a lot.

Pros

  • I used Illustrator to fix an intricate logo that had a typo. It was the kind fix that benefited from more robust tools.
  • Altering and repurposing a logo for a custom t-shirt design.
  • Creating different versions of the same graphic with different backgrounds (also, removing backgrounds entirely).

Cons

  • High learning curve
  • Occasional bugs during saving
  • Can be demanding on computer system resources
No photo available
  • I gave it a 10 for a reason....
  • Some graphs could have more features to change their appearance (but perhaps then it wouldn’t be as simple)
  • Should have a better way to copy and paste to another app

While Adobe Illustrator CC is one of the only true design software out there, it really stands heads above the other products. It's clean UI and menu structure is easy to navigate.

Alternatives Considered

Illlustrator is a tracing and path software, so that makes it only capable to do illustrations. It not the best for manipulating photos, so it stacks up against the tracing or path tool from Photoshop but it doesn't have all the photo manipulation that is possible through Photoshop, so I think is a mix depending on what you are looking for.

Info gram is perfect for quick making a graph without losing any time. Other tools oblige us to lose more time to make the same thing.

Return on Investment

  • Again, I don't have access to concrete numbers but it is a top-notch program and I'd imagine it could only have a positive impact on our sales numbers. This program allows our team to create, quickly and seamlessly, amazing pieces for our products/packaging

  • Has a free user option and it is faster and easier to build great graphical graphs.
  • Now I don’t have to ask design guys to make me a fancier graph for a presentation.
  • After the first graphs are made I can reuse them for the next month's presentation.
