Why Adobe Illustrator?
Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard for computer-aided design for Fashion Print Design. It has changed the way the industry works and saves countless time, money and sampling. The software allows designers to create print-ready fashion print designs that can easily be edited and reworked all whilst adding your own creative style. Think that CAD takes the creativity and skill out of drawing? It really doesn’t, it is just another type of medium and canvas on which to be creative – it also has an undo button!
