Symbols is something I don't actually use much in Adobe Illustrator, but it can be pretty handy if you know you'll be re-using elements in your artwork. I've been working on a series of illustrations where each illustration uses a lot of the same elements, but in a different composition, size etc. I turned all of these elements into a Symbol and so I use instances of them in my artwork.
