Development Process

Though you have learned how to draw basic shapes, paths, and polygons, and apply filters to your objects, the reality is that you will likely continue to use your drawing tools to create your design work. Applications such as Adobe Illustrator 10, CorelDraw 10, and JASC WebDraw 1.0 allow you to create your imagery in a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) environment, removing you from the underlying code. Just as most designers couldn't program their designs in the PostScript language, the reality is that most won't be programming their artwork in SVG code either.

Frankly, this is a good thing. Designers don't think in terms of variables and coding requirements any more than engineers think in terms of amorphous shapes moving around. Using tools such as those listed previously, designers are able to develop their material in the manner that makes the most sense to them. In return, these tools produce code that can be manipulated and understood by engineers.
