Summary

Using Adobe Illustrator to create your SVG content allows beautiful design work to enter the SVG sphere. Although any code created by Illustrator can certainly be created by hand, the amount of time required to plot all the coordinates and shapes of most design work would be monumental.

As such, knowing how to effectively create and export your Illustrator artwork can further increase the usefulness of this tool. By having designers name and manage layers, use precise coordinates and document sizes, trim masked content, and clean up style sheet exports, engineers can focus on what they do best, rather than having to deal with excessive cleanup.
