Corel Draw! Not professional enough?
Posted 30 October 2009 - 01:44 AM
I'm using Corel Draw since the first time I work on design/layout projects. But most of others designer i know are using Illustrator! What do you think what are the advantages of both. Please share your experience - maybe someone knows both programs.
Thx for your comments
Each designer has a different reason for using the tools of their choice & allot of times you'll run into designers that use a totally different set of tools than you are familiar with, yet they still produce industry standard work.
My 3 main vector based software's used are: CorelDraw X3 / Illustrator CS3 / Serif DrawPlus X4. Serif DrawPlus being my primary choice of vector tools & used daily.
Adobe Illustrator is an industry standard due to the shear number of users familiar with it's exportable file extensions. The more people that use a software, the more the industry recognizes it as a standard. Because of this Illustrator has become the #1 choice for most designers & print companies due to the .Eps / .Ai popularity.
CorelDraw tends to have a friendlier user interface yet the color palettes seem a bit dull compared to other software's even though it's the proper Hex & Rgb sequences, this makes it a little harder to Gage colors by visual comparison. CorelDraw X3 saves as a .Ai file extension so it makes it easy for cross platform compatibility when encountering a illustrator using client.
I think Both software's are just as good & that it boils down to 2 things: 1.) The designers comfort level with the software, & 2.) The ability to provide a client with the solutions they need. As long as you have those 2 things, the skies the limits (Assuming the designer already has a good skill set & level of creativity).
Just my thoughts though...

If you want to beter management of your work it is more efficient to use one system "adobe" from photoshop - illustrator- indesign..... this is the most advantage I thing

Lets make it simple.
Besides the software capabilities (similar) between corel and Illu
The BIG difference is that a PROFESSIONAL designer needs to use on the long way, allmost every software of adobe... and lets face it... corel die on compatibility.
I also hear that someone says that corel is easyer to use... well this is the other big difference...
Core provides a lot of "allready made" stuff
Illustrator gives you the basic tools to make all yourself!
Yo have more freedom... but you need to be smart and skilled to use it 100%
Im sorry about my english... my native language is spanish.
