If you are designing an icon in Illustrator, select the Window/New Window menu to open a new view for the same document. Now select the View/Pixel Preview or press Apple-Alt-Y (Command-Option-Y) to change one window to pixel preview mode. Place the two windows side by side and enjoy seeing your logo in pixel preview while working on it in vectors. This way you can make sure you’re using the right line width and see how your curves translate to pixels.
