Adobe Illustrator

Adobe® Illustrator® is a professional quality graphic art program. Its applications are diverse, from creating print to web graphics and, for our purposes, posters. Although the program is complex and requires a significant amount of time to truly master, it is quite easy to learn the basics and create work with a professional appearance. Designing a poster does not require any special artistic talent or skills; it just requires having the patience to get acquainted with the program. As with most computer applications, I recommend using the trial-and-error methodology to figure out the intricacies of this program. You will make numerous mistakes, and frequently want to make changes. Thankfully Illustrator is equipped with an undo option. In fact, undo [Crtrl+Z] will become a very familiar action as you design your poster.

Adobe Illustrator

Meet the most powerful and connected Illustrator ever. The new Touch Type tool gives you even more control over type: Move, scale, and rotate individual characters knowing you can change the font or copy at any time. And with Illustrator CC, you can share work directly from within the application, sync colors from Adobe Kuler, and sync fonts from Adobe Typekit. Your entire creative world, together in one place. Only in Creative Cloud.

Some of my highlights

Enjoy a new level of creativity with type. Individual characters now act like distinct objects. Move, scale, and rotate text characters, knowing you can change the font or edit at any time. And use your favorite mouse, stylus, or multitouch device.
With Illustrator CC — part of Creative Cloud — your creative process becomes seamless, intuitive, and more connected. Get it as a single-app subscription or with a Creative Cloud complete membership, which also includes every other Adobe creative tool.

This is typical post-production workflow.
