Barring the DC vs Marvel, which is better, debate; nothing has quite vexed the minds of people as the timeless uncertainty of CorelDraw or Illustrator. When it comes to these two vectors based software most of the graphics community draws a clear line as to which one triumphs the other.

Illustrations are always quoting that theirs is an industry standard while Corellers maintain that just because something is an industry standard it doesn't necessarily mean its the best. Like how Goliath was the standard of strength and courage only to be knocked out by a much smaller and smarter David.

People who say Illustrator is an industry standard, mostly quote what they read online or for that matter, talk about it on an international level. Those with hands-on experience in Indian industries would know that CorelDraw is still used in a lot of firms.

I always maintain that a design software is like a pencil. You hold a pencil and it does what your brain tells it to do. That connection is a make or breaks for a fine artist or calligrapher. The output should be the representation of a visualized input. That being said, I'm sure no one would like to draw with a bad quality pencil if there's a better one around (though I've seen a very good friend just pick up flaky, brittle charcoal sticks and churn out masterpieces).

Corel and Illustrator are both big names. They've been tried and tested and quality wise, both are equally awesome. But like DC, Illustrator seems like it has to carry the weight of humanity around while Corel like Marvel has adapted to what the market needs.

Everything aside, when it comes down to a clash of the Titans and you have to bet your demonetized currencies on a savior, here's my unbiased opinion:

1. If you work is going to be mostly web-based, choose the illustrator. The best part about it is that you can copy paste an illustration straight from Illustrator to Photoshop. It's magic.

If you want to make print stuff, Corel away, as it is extremely friendly when it comes to large-scale type treatment and layouting (here's where InDesign comes into play, but we're strictly talking Illustrator vs Corel).

2. Do you like gradients in your work? Hail Corel.

3. Is your work predominantly illustrations? Choose illustrator, as it is very good for 'pen to paper-paper to digital' conversions.

4. Illustrator, if you're the type of person who likes to take a canvas and Picasso away.

5. Corel, if you like keeping a sketch pad and use different pages to visualize and reach your final masterpiece.

6. User Interface? Corel.

7. Exporting different file formats. They'd say its illustrator, but Corel is as good.

9. Diehard print fan? Corel

10. Color Management? Illustrator.

The list is long and I don't want to keep typing forever, so I'll stop at ten (as general lists go). So in conclusion, both are equally good for all said above as I've done pretty much everything on both and it's just a personal choice as to which glove fits your hand the best.

Deep down, I feel the Indian graphic universe isn't really black and white where Superman or Batman would easily swoop down and tackle a problem, but manifests itself a lot in the grey areas.

That's why I'd bet on Wolverine.

5 top job opportunities for a graphic designer

Work for a design company or start your own studio, the choice is yours. This is the flexibility of being a graphic designer. The career options are plenty.

We list five job profiles that you can take up if you are a graphic designer.

Advertising art director 

Graphic designer

If you are the advertising art director the basically, you’re the big boss. The advertising art director works along with the copywriter(s) to create effective visual communication. But the job is not limited to an ad agency. Film production houses, studios, web design companies, graphic design companies, and even print & publishing houses hire advertising art directors. This means ample job opportunities in the market for trained & skilled graphic designers.

Animator

 Graphic designer

Don’t be surprised. The basic job of an animator is to produce several digitally or hand-drawn images, and even puppets. Over a period of time, it has been noticed that good graphic designers make great animators because they have a sense of visual appeal. This is the most important requirement for an animator as it is their job to put different images in a sequence for impactful & unforgettable story telling. From 2D & 3D model-making to stop-motion and computer-generated animation, with knowledge of graphic design, you can choose to work in any type of animation or even multiple types at a time.

Graphic designer 

 Graphic designer

Well this is what you basically train for. Based on the needs of a client, a graphic designer produces ideas & concepts to create a visual brand. As mentioned before, being a graphic designer allows you to work in different industries including advertising, magazines, computer games, websites, books, and corporate communication.

Illustrator 

 Graphic designer

This is the big picture! You can either choose to be just a graphic designer or become an illustrator. It is the work of an illustrator that takes a story or an idea forward by giving it a visual representation. These can be through drawing, photography or digitally created.

Printmaker

 Graphic designer

In this fast moving digital world, there is still a huge demand for graphic designers in print & publishing. This is best suited for those who are a little more adventurous, and like doing things with their bare hands instead of sitting in front of a computer. Woodcuts & silk-screens are two of the most common techniques used by printmakers to create images. The designs are created by hand, and then transposed onto surfaces, usually with a printing press. You could be creating interesting book jackets for famous authors or unique invites for celebrities. This industry also allows graphic designers to enjoy the best of both worlds. Instead of using traditional methods, you can adopt digital printing process to create great designs making them work closely with computer artists.

Go to www.istock.com or www.shutterstock.com and put your requirement even in sentence form into search box e.g. "a man with a computer etc". Because now a day search filters are smart enough to find out the data (in your case images) for any keyword which comes from the concept or subject of your design. But these images would be paid so if you don't want to buy it then copy a proper keyword from that search result and try to find it on google and try your luck if it is not copyrighted :) read less
