Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Illustrator CC

Adobe Illustrator CC is being used for nearly 80% of all design-related work for clients. It's one of the best parts of the Adobe Creative Suite considering it's vector-based and being that we have a variety of clients who need both digital and print related assets, vector-based is the best so that resolution doesn't get lost.
  • Vector scaling.
  • Clean beautiful art work.
  • Easier to learn if you're familiar with Adobe PhotoShop or InDesign.
  • General shortcuts should be the same as other parts of the Adobe Creative Suite.
  • Pen tool anchor points don't always move into the exact place, even when all "snap options" are off.
  • Colors don't seem consistent across Adobe Creative Suite even when both files are RGB or CMYK.
  • Vector-based/pen tool.
  • Ability to create quick and clean assets for websites.
  • Image trace tool.
  • Positive - ROI.
  • Positive - Easy to adjust work without loss of resolution.
  • Positive - Use of image trace to jumpstart art.
Adobe Illustrator is generally preferred to use over the use of InDesign and Photoshop mostly due to the nature of our work. It's usually the most efficient in getting what needs to be done, done. It's easier to use than Photoshop for a lot of things. InDesign also has a pen tool option but it doesn't work that great in comparison to Adobe Illustrator - which I find to be strange...why have it in the program if it barely matches up to Adobe Illustrator's pen tool?

AI is well suited for designers and illustrators who need to create scalable art work or assets and don't want to lose resolution. Clean and beautiful work can be created with AI. However the learning curve is not the quickest so it is better suited for those who either already have some knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite or for those who are willing to spend the time and money to learn from a course or on their own.
