At Ellae Creative, we pride ourselves at being creative and tech savvy. We have been around the block, used various applications and can boldly say that we know what we are talking about when it comes to design.
Yet the big question still looms, why Adobe Illustrator? It is noticeable that a considerable number of Nigerian graphic designers still use Corel Draw. Corel Draw is an old faithful, Windows compatible software used by many graphic designers in Nigeria to design vector paintings, illustrations, business cards, e-flyers and many more.
Adobe Illustrator has been around for about over 20 years and is rapidly becoming on of the most popular desktop publishing packages on the market today, compatible with both Apple and Windows. Here are some benefits to learning about the software stated below.
- First off, although Corel Draw is cheaper, Adobe is used by big brand agencies because of its output format
- Adobe Illustrator is versatile and can generate charts and graphs from excel spreadsheets.
- Adobe Illustrator has an arguably better and more accurate colour chart than Corel Draw.
- Adobe Illustrator also works well with Adobe Flash After Effects and Premier, making it usable for film production and motion graphics.
- Illustrator has become the industry standard for creating vector graphics. If you ever need to share files with other creative professionals (including printers), things will go smoother if you’re using the most commonly known software.
- Since Illustrator is made by Adobe; designs and actions work generally pretty well when you need to go back and forth with other Adobe products, such as Photoshop or InDesign.
- Because it’s so commonly used, there’s much more resources available for Illustrator than for Corel Draw.
