Lillicon: Using Transient Widgets to Create Scale Variations of Icons

Lillicon is a vector-drawing system that lets users select and manipulate objects that aren't really there (negative space strokes, incomplete shapes, etc.) using "transient widgets". It helps designers create small-scale variations of icons for various displays and use cases.

Accelerating Vector Graphics Rendering Using the Graphics Hardware Pipeline

Learn how engineers at Adobe Systems and NVIDIA GPU-accelerated Adobe Illustrator CC rendering. Among other challenges, this paper discusses overcoming the GPU's RGB-centric assumptions to support the CMYK color model used for high-quality printing. The techniques can also accelerate vector
graphics for web browsers, PDF viewers, and printers.
