Because Adobe Illustrator creates vector-based drawings, it is one of the better programs on the market for creating logos. A vector-based program uses lines and points rather than pixels to define the drawing. This means that when a logo drawn with vectors is enlarged, the quality will remain the same. However, when a logo is drawn with pixels, as in Photoshop, when the logo is enlarged, it loses quality and becomes pixilated. This tutorial will teach you how to design vector-based logos in Adobe Illustrator.
