Today at work I have been helping a colleague learn some of the fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator CS5. I use this program so much anymore it is in many ways second nature to me, much like Photoshop, Premier, and After Effects. It’s hard to believe that Adobe Illustrator was introduced 25 years ago this month.
Back in the day it seemed so revolutionary, and today when I watched this video, it proved just how far the design industry has come in the last decade and a half. There are two videos below. The second features John Warnock and is 35 minutes long. I’m going to be upfront, and I hope I don’t offend any die hard Adobe fans. The second video, while nostalgic, is pretty hard to watch. I made it about 5 minutes before I started skipping around.
Happy Birthday Adobe Illustrator.
