Illustrator and InDesign seem so similar. Why learn both?
Answer: Illustrator and InDesign seem very similar at first glance,
but these are two very different programs. Illustrator, as its name
implies is a drawing program with limited layout abilities, InDesign
is a page layout program with limited drawing abilities.
Illustrator can create one page layouts easily, but the moment
you want multiple pages, such as a print portfolio, thesis, booklet
or multiple board studio project, InDesign is your only choice.
