So it sounds like you are (and perhaps rightfully so) assuming Adobe will dominate this field in time and thus are proactively avoiding adapting and inheriting it’s use into your designing process.

You have the right of course, but purposely avoiding using applications as a designer is probably not the best of advice for other designers, I’m not trying to give you a hard time but you should think about the seeds you are planting in others. Just my two cents.

I love to study and write about ideas, around: Catholicism, UX/UI Design, Creativity and Helping Others.
