Don't Settle For Standard Fare Graphic Editors
Just sharing a quick progress update this morning before I head out to a park with my wife and our dog to get some fresh air.
As of just moments ago, my website is branded with a logo I created... which brings to mind the tool I used to create it.
Why I Don't Use Adobe Illustrator
Adobe is considered to be "the standard" in the graphic design industry for creating vector graphics such as logos, and not surprisingly, it's what we used in college for this purpose as well.
Don't Settle For The Standard Fare.
I wasn't overly fond of Adobe's HUGE price tags back then (around $800.00 for the entire creative suite), but when they went entirely to a subscription-based model that runs over $600.00/yr for an individual subscription, I lost interest.
And then I discovered something much better!
Enter Serif's Affinity Designer.
I've owned and used it for over a year now and it's easily just as powerful as Adobe's offerings — and actually even more user-friendly! But most shocking of all is the price tag... just a one-time purchase that's under $100.00!
To be clear, I am not affiliated with them in any way and the link above is a direct link to their product page.
