Adobe Illustrator

Corel Draw

Inkskape



-Bitmap

Adobe Photoshop

Gimp



-3d

Blender

Cinema4d



<span style="color:#789922;">>Which program is the best for X?</span>

It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.

Redesign this from the ground up. What would you use? Corporate sanitization, and minimalism, or embrace the retards? Maybe a mix of both, or just minimalist Yotsuba?

I'm so pissed about this change and I'm not even that racist, it looks disgusting and is just tailor made for virtue signalling. It checks all the boxes for a modern graphic design:
