Using Inkscape professionally

Postby StevenD » Tue Oct 07, 2014 2:32 pm

I would like to try asking this again. I am curious to know if anyone uses Inkscape to earn a living. Most of the graphics related jobs I find listed want designers who are experienced in other popular illustration software. So is there anyone out there who uses Inkscape in a professional capacity?

I really like Inkscape and it is the only illustration application I use these days.

This question has been asked and answered (in this forum) several times before....maybe that's what you mean by "again". In any case, a forum search should turn up a lot of responses.

The short answer is YES. I don't know if anyone uses Inkscape exclusively, AND earns their entire living with Inkscape only. One of the biggest features that Inkscape lacks, for professionals, is CMYK print color, and probably a couple of other less important things. But plenty of professionals use Inkscape in their daily work!
