Day 2 at SXSW – All About Digital Marketing

On Day 2 at SXSW Interactive, we switched gears from the conversations we had about creativity on day 1 to talk all about digital marketing.

We started off the day with a demo and vision of Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, where the audience got to see the cloud in action.

Then, we hosted a lively debate to a packed house on the subject, “Is Marketing B.S.?” Moderated by Mashable‘s Todd Wasserman, our panelists, which included BJ Mendelson, Thor Muller, Jeff Feldman, and Christian Waitzinger, shared their opinions about social marketing and advertising, the intersection of marketing with customer support, social media ROI, and more. To wrap up the day, the audience got a good laugh with comedian Baratunde Thurston, who took the stage right after the panel to provide a comedic recap of the debate. You can catch our favorite moments from the day in the video below.

And of course, thanks to everyone who helped us drive a conversation around #AdobeSXSW throughout the festival. For each mention of our hashtag, we donated $1 to STEM to STEAM, a movement that integrates art and science into education curriculum. We’re still tallying the final numbers and will share with you once we have them!

It was great to meet everyone at SXSW. Thanks for coming out; we hope you had a safe journey back home. See you next year!

Creative Camp at SXSW – That’s a Wrap

Our Creative Camp at this year’s SXSW Interactive has officially come to a close. It was a great day filled with rich content and good conversations with attendees. Here’s a quick recap of the day’s highlights.

We started off the day with our tradition, the 5th annual bacon breakfast. You can’t start a productive day without a good breakfast, right? Then, worldwide evangelist Paul Trani jumped into the latest tools and services available in the Adobe Creative Cloud. Paul showed us how individuals and teams can create and collaborate in the Cloud. Then, he showed us how easily we can add animation and interactivity with Edge Animate.

Then, Product Manager Jacob Surber shared the development principles behind the creation of Adobe Edge Reflow. Jacob showed us all the iterations of Reflow’s UI, starting with today and going backwards all the way to the beginning.

Next, we hosted a panel on the realities and challenges of responsive design today with talented panelists: Sophie ShepherdTrent Walton, and Emily Wengert.

Last, Adobe’s Alex Morris presented a session on the “Content shaped elephant in the room.” How can web designers think content first, while reflecting the intent of your message?

Highlight of the day? Probably Jacob’s shirt, “Friends don’t let friends fix widths.”
