What is Adobe Illustrator? And its Early Life

Adobe Inc made Adobe Illustrator as a graphic design, font, and logo development application. Mainly Adobe made Illustrator for Apple Macintosh, the development started in 1985. In January 1987, Adobe Illustrator was out. Adobe Illustrator 1.0 only had 13 tools but back in 1987, it was a big hit. Adobe Illustrator was simpler, easier, and faster than its competitors. The first Adobe Illustrator that had a marketing image was Botticelli’s Venus, Adobe chose Botticelli’s Venus from “The Birth of Venus”.   

Did you know there wasn’t preview mode till version 4 (Windows) and 5 (Macintosh)?

The Adobe Illustrator marketing image from 1987. The Italian artist Sandro Botticelli painted The Birth of Venus, He probably made it in the mid-1480s. It depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown (called Venus Anadyomene and often depicted in the art). The painting is in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

Adobe Illustrator: Hello Windows

Two years later, Adobe made a relevant version for Windows users, which was unusual since it was primarily made for Macintosh. As a result, Adobe proved that they could make anything for any operating system.

 SoIllustrator kept updating itself through the course of these years it kept making itself faster and smarter. Every update was a big success because every update had new futures. 


The Adobe team made some major changes to Illustrator’s user interface with the publish of Illustrator 6 in 1996. Illustrator 6 was the first Illustrator that was available in Windows and Macintosh.   

It wasn’t until the mid-90s with version 7.0 when users started to finally see some standardization between the Macintosh and Windows versions that really ended the rivalry to beat each other out.

BOO… Introducing the Creative Suite!!

In 2003, Adobe decided to bundle all its victorious products together into one super box called the Adobe Creative Suite. With this, for the first time user were able to create simple 3D effects and objects, a huge milestone in the designer world, and more discoveries just kept coming.

Creative Cloud

Adobe debut Creative Cloud in 2013 – Tody We know it as a “software rental”. Creative Cloud put back the Creative Suite. Today, with Creative Cloud, you’ll pay monthly/annually for the most modern digital software.


Twenty-five generation or thirty-three years later Adobe released CC 2021 at the end of 2020. But, whatever version you use and whichever you think is your favorite, be it, Illustrator, 6, or CC 2021, it surely has been a delightful and exciting ride for one of the most beloved graphic designer’s tools. It accomplished its mission which was to become one of Adobe stars in the market.

    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
