Vector illustration is one of the most satisfying and exciting creative outputs. This is actually a game of pure enjoyment, playing with shapes and colour.
So what exactly is vector illustration? Vector illustrations produced in Adobe Illustrator (as opposed to pixel-based illustrations produced in photoshop) are essentially made up of lines and points, which form shapes, which you then build up in layers to produce the artwork.
Vector art is created by using graphic design software, such as CorelDRAW and is different than standard computer-generated artwork. It has the ability to reshape and connect control points, or nodes, that allows users to create artwork. Also, because vector illustration isn’t pixel-based, it’s easy to zoom in and out on an image without any resolution issues. It’s best used for simple shapes and colors, such as logo design.
