I'm new to both Illustrator and InDesign. I need to be able to create basic marketing materials for my photography business, business cards, postcards, greeting cards etc with combinations of text and photo. I understand the basic mechanics of each programme, (e.g. InDesign for booklets, multi-pages etc), but not sure which will serve me better for single page layouts? Thx!
You could probably use either. But if there's a lot of type, the style features of InDesign trump Illustrator. If there's a lot of vector graphics, Illustrator trumps InDesign.
