Join Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, Adobe's SVP and GM of Digital Media David Wadhwani, and a collection of Adobe visionaries across digital photography, web design, illustration, video and more as we unveil brand new creative workflows and capabilities. We'll take a look at the present and set our sights on the endless possibilities in our creative future.

Community Inspires Creativity
Join David Wadhwani, Adobe's SVP and GM of Digital Media, as he welcomes four incredibly creative minds to explore how they foster creativity and approach their work. You will hear from Rob Legato, an Oscar winning visual effects supervisor; Paula Scher, an iconic graphic designer and illustrator; Erik Johansson, an up and coming photographer and retouch artist; and Phil Hansen, a constraint-based artist that believes limitations drive creativity. We think you'll leave with more than a few new ideas to incorporate in your next creative project.

Join us for our next meeting Thursday morning, April, 18th @ 10:00AM, in Duncan Hall Conference Room. See you there!

The Adobe MAX Conference in LA is rapidly approaching! If you are going, or would like to, please come to the meeting and we can fill you in on the details. There is a educational discounted price, and an awesome student discount price, plus, for every 2 people that register we can register another person for free. Although there would still be lodging and transportation cost for that person. Also, as if the training, experience, and fun of the conference were not enough, everyone who attends the conference gets a 1 year free subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud!

Adobe Is Coming To Auburn!

Adobe is coming to Auburn

AU-OIT is currently investigating the possibility of having an enterprise agreement with Adobe! To this end, representatives from Adobe will be on campus to give an overview of how Adobe works with education to help students, administration, and brand. Due to the overwhelming response from the Auburn community, they have had to split up the presentation into multiple sessions and are asking everyone to sign up for the session time you would like to attend. I'd highly recommend going if you can and we can talk all about it at our next AMMUG meeting, which is Thursday at 10:00AM in the Duncan Hall conference room. See you there!

Adobe® 2012 Mobile Consumer Survey Results

smart phone Using mobile sites, apps, and emerging technologies to get ahead

The proliferation of mobile devices and tablets continues to rise. In 2011, smartphone adoption alone reached 38% in the United States and is projected to grow to 48% in 20121. Mobile has become a long-term initiative for businesses, yet marketers are still finding their way on how to define, implement, and optimize their mobile marketing strategies. Results from the Adobe 2012 Mobile Consumer Survey show that consumers are using their smartphones and tablet devices to connect with brands in a variety of ways, but there is significant room for improvement in the user experience.

How to Use InDesign's Liquid Layout

layout There's an interesting article in InDesign Magazine about using the liquid layout in InDesign CS6. This sort of reminds me of the fluid grids in Dreamweaver CS6. I also like the way they created the navigation in this PDF file. Pretty cool.

CSS Summit 2012

CSS Summit 2012 , the same guys who put together the video conference from the Accessibility Summit hosted by OIT recently, are holding a 3 day video conference on CSS3, July 31-August 2, 2012 from 9AM to 4PM (CT).

There is a "meeting" option for purchasing tickets and Sam Singer has voiced interest in getting a group together to participate. If you are interested and/or willing to contribute to the cost of a group ticket, please contact Sam and let him know. If we have enough people interested to spread out the cost of the ticket, it may be possible to do this. Or, if you know of any department or group that may be interested in sponsoring this, as OIT did for the Accessibility Conference, please let Sam know. Thanks.
