We all know that creatives have very busy schedules, but there are some dates in the design calendar that simply shouldn’t be missed. So stop what you’re doing and put a big bright note next to the 14 November in your diary as the day you’ll join us for Adobe’s Creative Meet Up (opens in new tab). In just a week’s time, the software giant will be heading down to the heart of London’s creative community, where some of the industry’s brightest minds will be sharing their expertise. And you can be there too as we live stream all the action right here on Creative Bloq.
Join us on 14 November from 18:30 GMT (19:30 CET) to hear from some of the most creative minds in the business. Principal Manager of Creative Cloud (opens in new tab) Evangelism at Adobe Rufus Deuchler (opens in new tab) will kick things off with details of the latest game-changing updates to Creative Cloud, swiftly followed by luminary talks from prolific art director Kate Moross (opens in new tab) and artist and print designer Kelly Anna (opens in new tab). If that wasn’t enough, there will also be live tutorial with multidisciplinary graphic designer Tina Touli (opens in new tab), and none other than one of the world’s most influential and visionary photographers Nick Knight (opens in new tab) headlining the event.
As well as this stellar line-up of speakers, the Creative Meet Up is a great opportunity to find out more about the next generation of Creative Cloud, which was recently unveiled at Adobe’s annual Adobe MAX conference in Las Vegas. Constantly working to meet the needs of and enhance the workflow for busy artists and designers, the show-stopping event showcased new feature updates to its flagship applications, Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC and Premiere Pro CC. There were also many other exciting announcements, including four brand new applications:
- Adobe XD CC - developed in open partnership with the design community through a public beta, Adobe XD is the go-to tool for designing and prototyping mobile apps and website.
- Adobe Dimension CC - previously Project Felix, Dimension allows graphic designers to really get to grips with the power and flexibility of 3D, with the ease of working with 2D.
- Character Animation CC - launched just a couple of weeks ago, this brilliant 2D animation tool helps bring still image artwork from Photoshop or Illustrator to life.
- Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC - the all-new cloud-centric photo service for editing, organising, storing and sharing photos from anywhere.
Other highlights at Adobe MAX included details of Adobe’s artificial intelligence platform Adobe Sensei, which has been implemented into all of the new CC updates. This means that the entire design process, from concept to completion, is accelerating dramatically. Attendees were also excited to learn of additional investment and expanded resources from Adobe to help people fully realise their creative potential. This includes the launch of AdobeLIVE (opens in new tab) on Behance, a livestreaming channel where 10 million Behance community members can learn from and inspire each other.
With all this development and innovation, it’s no wonder creatives across the globe choose Adobe products as their go-to tools. Want to know more? Join us for the Adobe Creative Meet Up (opens in new tab) live stream, right here on the 14 November!
