Design and Coding Apps from Adobe
Dreamweaver, Illustrator, XD and more
If you’re looking to create anything from web graphics, logos, icons, book illustrations, product packaging, billboards and so on, then Illustrator is the ideal software to make that possible. Illustrator is vector based so if you’re making logos and icons, creating typography or drawing freehand, it’s completely scalable. Illustrator is also available on iPad, so can now be used anywhere.
Animate is Adobe’s replacement for their legendary Flash Animation suite. With Animate, you can do just what it says on the tin, animate just about anything.
Games, adverts, apps and other multimedia content, whatever you can imagine, you can create. Using a frame-based system, you can get as granular as you like with your animations and with the power of Creative Cloud behind it, any assets you create can be instantly imported into the project with just a click and a drag.
With Character Animator you can easily bring yourself into the animation process for easy lip-syncing and puppeteering of the onscreen character with something as simple as your laptop webcam and a few keyboard shortcuts. Turn any art into an animated character or use built-in templates to create a character in seconds. Character Animate also so fast you can livestream your performance.

Need to test a project or create a layout for an app or website that you’ll then hand over to someone who has a little more coding experience?
