Chapter Eleven. Web and Mobile Design

There’s no question that Adobe Illustrator suffers from schizophrenia. One moment it’s a print-based application with spot colors and crop marks, and the next, it’s a Web-based application with Web-safe color panels and slices. And that’s okay, because as designers living in the 21st century, we all suffer from the same schizophrenia. This is because we are called upon to create art that will be used in many different ways—most notably in print, on the Web, and even now on handheld mobile devices, such as cell phones. Even if you are living in a print-or Web-centric world, others may use and repurpose the art that you create. That’s where Illustrator excels—in repurposing artwork for a variety of uses.
