Do not try and use this for multi-page designs—the multiple artboards you'd need to create within one doc are just a pure hassle and it's really a task better suited to InDesign in any case. This is great for any sort of design work where you want to be able to create quick and easy, highly editable vector graphics. It also pairs very nicely when used in tandem with Photoshop to do actual illustration. I think it shines the most when being used to create web assets (whether you export as JPEG, PNG or SVG), infographics, logos and flow charts.

Illustrator is great for graphic design work across the board and can be used for a wide variety of projects, such as posters, digital ads, short video slides, etc. I can't really think off the top of my head what it wouldn't be good for. But if you have a willingness to learn and spend time with Illustrator, it will open up so many design opportunities to you.

Logos and other artwork that needs to scale up and down are the best place to use Illustrator. I find it fast and powerful so I don't spend time waiting on it to refresh. As a CorelDraw user for 30 years, I can say that Illustrator is the more powerful of the two even if Corel is easier to just pick up and learn.

Adobe Illustrator is perfect for graphic designs. It allows me to create any design that I need (thanks to the vector tool). Our department uses it as the main tool for creating any visual ads, social media ads and any marketing printed materials that we use in public events. Illustrator might not be suitable for people who are new to the software because it is not easy to figure out all the features and tools options that illustrator provides.

We use Illustrator when designing graphics. It is not meant to be a design layout program even though some people do use it that was. Wonderful for designing logos, creating graphs and info graphics. I have been an Illustrator user for over 20 years and there are still things I am learning. They have great product updates and seem to listen to user feedback when adding in faster ways to accomplish tasks.

Adobe Illustrator is especially well suited for use in creating graphics or logos, one-page flyers, signs, or folded brochures (no more than front and back printing). The pen tool and layers make it easy to complete complicated text wraps. I would not recommend Illustrator for multiple page documents - Adobe InDesign is the better tool for that type of design.

Illustrator is best suited to icon development, logo design or 2D mockups. These are quick to implement and it's brilliant for creating campaign assets to use elsewhere. Illustrator falls down when it comes to create large format print - even at half size or quarter size, it simply can't handle it. However, it's perfect for initial layouts.

Illustrator is well suited to absolutely any kind of print design, sketch, brainstorm or, resumes. It's ok if you want to create multi-page documents, or multi-frame sketches. That's a relatively newer functionality that I love. But it really shines as a playground for two dimensions.

Not very intuitive, I wish there was a way to know what each feature did and how to make your design nicer. Situations where it is less suitable is editing pictures. I would say Adobe Illustrator works great when you are creating something from scratch, does not work well with other software. Overall a great product to create templates and diagrams.

Illustrator is well suited for anything with creative or graphic design. Especially digital media. Where the pace and end product matter, it's important to use software that's integrated and has the capabilities of quicker turnarounds through shortcuts and integrated connections, like Adobe Cloud. Adobe Illustrator is a creative software that would have no use in photography or video. Think digital, "still" media. Illustrator is used mainly for graphics creation and is even usable with web mock-ups.

Adobe Illustrator is great for creating and editing vector graphics. It also integrates well with the rest of Adobe World. Sharing with a cloud is amazing possibility. Also, I am able to save or import files of many different types.
For a less experienced designer it is very difficult to habituate or work in such a complicated interface—there are too many options/features and too many buttons. However, I am a marketer and use it for my purposes without any problems.

The industry standard for digital imagery and production of print images, Adobe Illustrator will allow any graphic designer or digital artist to see their artwork through completion and production. Because it has been on the market for so long, Adobe has introduced a complete set of tools that is appropriate for any situation. Some may be turned off by the Adobe subscription model, however.

Adobe Illustrator is one of the best products in the market for graphics design. The vector tool gives the flexibility to create almost any design that we need. It is only less appropriate for people who are new the software but other than that it is a great tool!

Adobe Illustrator is the ideal software for working with vectors. It edits nodes well and has really advanced features in this area. Also, it is very good for working with text and images.

Not the ideal software for diagramming a large volume of text. In this case, the ideal indication is Adobe InDesign that has more tools for diagramming.

Basically I would say Adobe Illustrator CC is well suited for any situation where you need to create and print a graphic, poster, or ad. There are a lot of different features which means you can do a lot of different things in this program. If you are willing to put in some time learning Illustrator then the possibilities are endless.

For creating vector, scalable artwork, Illustrator is hands down the best option. Files created in Illustrator will yield a professional result. If you plan on using it to do print layouts, however, Illustrator is clunky and difficult to manage, in comparison to other Adobe products. It is not well suited for multi page documents such as books or manuals.

It is well suited for drawing or creating vector graphics, designing logos and creating website graphics and also product packaging design. Adobe illustrator would not be good for photo editing but that’s what photoshop is for!

Adobe Illustrator CC is really a program that is well suited for most graphic design needs, save for photo-manipulation. This program is perfect for logo design, shape making, illustration, and product design. I also like to use it for layout needs, even though I know Adobe Indesign is best for that.

I use Illustrator for all of my vectors. I'll create logos for clients, icons for print work or websites, and some illustration work. I would not suggest using it for photo editing, effects, or page layout.

Adobe Illustrator is best suited for creating vector objects that can easily be reshaped and resized while retaining all of its quality. This design software should be a graphic designer's go-to for designing logos, detailed graphics, fonts, and other photo-rich layouts. Designs created in Adobe Illustrator will create a better print, as well, since it is not resolution-dependent.

Adobe Illustrator CC is best suited for the creation of imagery, especially when it ultimately needs to be available in "high-res," or vector, format, such as logos. Great for creating charts that can be edited later by calling them up from InDesign; make changes to charts and they automatically update in InDesign. Great for creation of simple to complicated images. Great for copying and pasting text-based designs from InDesign for tweaking in Illustrator--GREAT when the graphic artist is more comfortable and able to use the fine-tuning ability of text offered in InDesign. Adobe Illustrator CC is not great for raster images, which is what Adobe Photoshop CC is for. Adobe Illustrator CC can be used for page layouts, but I prefer InDesign for that.

Adobe Illustrator is one of the most essential tools in professional graphic design and creative production. Most applications these days benefit from having scalable vector graphics at least at the concept and creation stage. Even if a raster solution is called for, it is often better to begin with vector if you can. This lets you scale to other applications or future technology improvements.
