Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Illustrator CC

Adobe Illustrator CC is being used by the marketing department. It is mainly used for creating various types of marketing materials, and also the logos and other virtual marketing materials that are needed for documents like reports, manuals, leaflets, brochures, websites, and letter header and footer for some of the official documents like purchase orders, quotations, invoices, etc.
  • Compatibility with other Adobe products.
  • Familiar interface that is used for many years.
  • Many other users worldwide make[s] it easy to share files for editing.
  • Software itself is resource demanding.
  • Many extra features required more plugins.
  • File size tends to become larger for newer versions.
  • Works with PDF files flawlessly.
  • Compatibility with Photoshop files.
  • Adobe Illustrator files can be sent directly to print companies.
  • Time saving for the files compatibility.
  • Reduced risk of file problem experienced by the print company.
  • Color management in line with printer saves color correction time.
Comparing with Affinity, Adobe Illustrator CC has a powerful core and very high compatibility with other Adobe products which is a huge advantage. The ease of use of various tools are also very familiar among different graphic designers within the corporation, making training of the software almost zero for them. [On the other hand], using Affinity take[s] a bit [of] time to get used to as it always needs to export to PDF files for general compatibility with others.

This would benefit huge corporations with many different graphic designers [due to] the compatibility of the files among different countries and regions, and the online collaboration features may also benefit projects which have huge scale and not to be done by a single user.

For a user that is a standalone designer, and the works will only ever be edited by himself, or there are many more users in the company that use different software, the advantage tends to reduce.
