Designer’s vs Artist’s Choice of Tools

Art has varied meanings that can be different based on a person’s experiences and emotions, whereas Design communicates a distinct message. Whether it is information (as in the instance of graphic design) or function, design is a communication device. Artistic ability is a talent that a person is born with. It can be cultivated and refined but part of the ability is innate, whereas Design can be taught and learned. Think of all the graphic design schools out there. Often many of the same people who have that born artistic ability are drawn to design as well but you don’t have to be an artist to succeed as a designer.

Many of us, learners of KLiC Courses, are aspiring to be both Artists as well as Designers. Both are distinct roles and require specific skillsets and specific tools. Comparing Photoshop and Illustrator; an image manipulating suite and a vector graphic designing package. So what are you, and what are you using the most!?
