Industry-leading tools used in layout, illustration, and editorial design are the star players for continuous innovation. For example, InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop are the most touted tools of Adobe Suite that lend themselves to revolutionize the way design is published.

These tools help content publishers to unlock the benefits of digital art for print and web media. An overview of the significant types of artwork created through the adoption of these technologies is described here.
