We live in an age where technology is always changing; letting the user have even more possibilities at the tip of their fingers. The same goes for design software’s for graphic designers. Today’s blog will be part one in a two-part blog about the top ranked design software’s for computers, and apps for tablets and mobiles.
TOP RANKED SOFTWARE’S FOR COMPUTERS:
Well I have had the chance to try out a couple of these software’s, I unfortunately haven’t tried out all of them, so with a little research, hopefully I’ll be able to do this justice. For computers, the top ranked design software in my opinion, as well as according to The Top Tens, is the Adobe Creative Suite. The Adobe Creative Suite comes with many different programs within it that graphic designers love. With Photoshop for editing images, Illustrator for creating graphics, and InDesign for designing page layouts, Adobe seems to have everything a designer could ever want. By purchasing the whole Creative Suite, you get these programs plus even more to explore and try out. You can purchase programs individually or purchase the entire suite annually for $800.83 CAD, or monthly for $70.74 CAD. I love the Adobe Creative Suite because it’s easy to use and even when you feel like a master at this software, there’s always more tips and tricks to learn so the possibilities are endless.
Next up on the list is CorelDRAW. Now I have never personally used this software, however I do know people and companies who do use it and love it. Much like Adobe, CorelDRAW has extensions or sub-software’s specific to certain aspects of graphic design such as Corel Photo Paint and Corel AfterShot for editing photos. They also offer different levels of their software, one for graphic designers which would be a little more advanced, and a “home and student” offer which would have a little less to it. You can currently purchase the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2018 for $569 CAD. This is one of the leading industry design software’s, so I would definitely like to check it out and compare it to Adobe in the future.
