Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Illustrator CC

We use Adobe Illustrator to create custom logos and graphics that are used in interior and exterior signage. The program also allows us to edit the shape and dynamics of text to create wording/type for large applications (ie exterior channel letters and formed/routed letters). When scaled up this creation maintain their clarity & are preferred over rasterized graphics for our customers.

Pros

  • GRADIENTS
  • TEXT EFFECTS
  • ILLUSTRATION
  • FONT MANIPULATION

Cons

  • LARGER ART BOARDS
  • BETTER SCALING CAPABILITIES
  • EASE OF USE FREES UP TIME
  • IT WORKS WELL W/ THE OTHER ADOBE PRODUCTS ALLOWING US TO PURCHASE ONLY ONE SET OF SOFTWARE
Illustrators menus and interface are far more user friendly. The online support and availability of tutorials and downloads is amazing.
We primarily use Adobe Illustrator to set and manipulate text. Fonts are a huge part of our workflow and being able to create large vector graphics is extremely important. We tend to move the lettering over to Photoshop when advanced effects are needed or if the project is highly photo/graphic based.
