    Yes the files do get big in Photoshop, but what I mean is that it seems photoshop has more powerful tools to make a piece visually stand out. like the use of textures and masks to add life to a vector...

    Anything that has multiple pages like a brochure, I lay out in InDesign. For something that is one page, like a poster, either InDesign or Illustrator would do fine. Though, InDesign has better output...

    I guess I'm too immersed in the lower end of the profession. I think B2B advertisers budget less of their income towards marketing than B2C. Or maybe they have smaller profit margins.

    While you may want to continue working towards an idea you feel strongly about, the blue circle logo in the last example you shared works well - I like its simplicity.

    Any advice on creating tiny icons so they look crisp at small sizes? (16x16px) I have very simple vector graphics but when I reduce them they don't display well. Any tricks for saving? Also when I reduce them below a certain size in illustrator the component of the group shift slightly and it won't allow me to put it back. For example a white square with a black square centered on top - after reducing the black square is slightly off center. It moves almost like I have snap to grid, point or whatever but none of those options are on. Is this a limitation to working at very small sizes? Should I be creating them in photoshop? Advice appreciated

    16x16 what? Pixels? Millimeters? Points?

    If you're referring to pixels, my best suggestion is to draw them one pixel at a time in Photoshop with the pencil tool.

      ^^ ONE PIXEL AT A TIME!!! how boring (joking)
      used to happen to me, commonly i would remove strokes and would work well and for some certain times i would acutally draw into 16x16, and then blow it up big.( work reverse).
