Adobe Illustrator

In my career, spanning over 30 years, I have used Adobe Illustrator for a very wide range of design applications from posters and fliers to book covers and billboards. I have used Illustrator for product design by employing the precision drafting capabilities that allow for creation of blueprints and map cartography. I use Illustrator to draft exportable files for computer-guided cutting and milling operations. In the fashion industry, I employ Illustrator to create vivid patterns for fabrics and appliques. And I often use Adobe Illustrator for Fine Art projects, Web Design Content, and for Book Illustrations as well.
