Adobe Illustrator is a software application for creating drawings, illustrations, and artwork using a Windows or MacOS computer. Illustrator is widely used by graphic designers, web designers, visual artists, and professional illustrators throughout the world to create high quality artwork. Illustrator includes many sophisticated drawing tools that can reduce the time needed to create illustrations. Illustrations represent an idea or a story through two-dimensional or three-dimensional images. Adobe Illustrator can do drawings for printed materials such as books, magazines, and other publications, or for commercial products such as textiles, packaging, wrapping paper, greeting cards, calendars, stationery, and more. Illustrators use many different mediums, from pencil and paint to digital formatting, graphs, and vectors, to prepare and create their illustrations. As an illustrator, you will consult with clients to best determine what illustrations will best meet the story they are trying to tell or the message they are trying to communicate. Adobe Illustrator is the industry-leading graphic design tool that lets you design anything you can imagine, – from logos and icons to graphics and illustrations, – and customize it with professional-level precision, as well as time
