Want to know what will get a couple thousand graphic designers out of bed at 7:00 or so on a Sunday morning?
A HOW Design Live presentation hosted by Adobe, that’s what. We’re talking 7 a.m., after a night of Boston pub crawls. [Better grab a tall coffee.]
Adobe is presenting three bonus sessions at HOW Design Live in Boston, to give you a sneak peek at their latest tools and technologies. If you want to learn about the newest tools in the designer’s arsenal, there’s no better time or place to be. (Hint: If you’re still trying to convince your boss to send you to HOW, you’ll want to mention this bonus design software training.)
Here’s what’s on the Adobe agenda:
Saturday, June 23, 12:15 p.m.
Design Websites Without Writing Code With Adobe Muse
Adobe senior worldwide design evangelist Rufus Deuchler will present the brand-new Adobe Muse application, which lets designers create and publish HTML websites without writing code. He’ll demo how to create a website from scratch using tools similar to what you’re used to using for print page production. Muse lets creative pros focus on design rather than technology, and it includes the TypeKit web font collection so you can work beyond the standard web fonts. Preview and testing functions let you finesse the design before releasing it to the web.
Sunday, June 24, 7:30 a.m.
Discover Adobe Creative Cloud and See What’s New in Creative Suite 6
Senior worldwide design evangelist Rufus Deuchler will walk you through the company’s new digital hub that lets you download and install every Creative Suite application and uses cloud-based storage to house files for sharing, collaboration and publishing. This morning session is notorious for delivering tons of deep user tricks and tips for Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. You’ll also get a walkthrough of Adobe Muse, which allows designers to create HTML websites without writing code.
Sunday, June 25, 12:15 p.m.
Learn to Create a Digital Publication for the iPad Without Writing Code
Designers can seamlessly translate their work for the Apple iPad using InDesign CS6 and Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. You’ll see how to put your existing InDesign skills to use (including new interactive tools in CS6) to create highly interactive content—magazines, books, annual reports, even your own design portfolio—for publication on the iPad. Adobe tools can manage the concept-to-completion workflow and create a branded app that can be distributed or sold via the iTunes store.
