Discover New Approaches to Creativity: The 2014 CreateNow World Tour

Following the June 18 announcements about the 2014 release of Creative Cloud, our team of worldwide evangelists will be kicking off a series of CreateNow events across the globe.

CreateNow_1

Starting now, we’re kicking off the 2014 CreateNow World Tour with interactive half-day Adobe events in 5 US cities and 32 additional locations led by Adobe user communities. At the same time, we’re taking CreateNow abroad over the summer and into the fall in Europe, Asia/Pacific and Japan.

The events are free, but require sign-up to reserve a spot (details below). Here’s what you can look forward to when you join us at one of our US Create Now Tour events:

They begin with an informal networking hour and a cool feature we call the Device Bar. It’s a chance to play around with Adobe Ink and Slide, the newly-announced Creative Cloud-connected pen and ruler; Adobe Line and Sketch our newest drawing and social sketching apps; and Adobe Photoshop Mix, a powerful new creative imaging app.

Afterward, we’ll head into our main program with our Adobe experts sharing some of the many updates just added to Creative Cloud. These include some of the hottest new features in Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Premiere Pro CC and other desktop products. Our worldwide evangelists know the Creative Cloud inside-out and from every angle, and can answer questions about the applications and membership. This year we’ll be showcasing new creative processes with innovations like 3D printing from Photoshop CC, website design with Adobe Muse, and how to incorporate creativity captured on mobile devices into desktop workflows.

We’ll also share the powerful ways to take Creative Cloud to a collaborative level  with features that save time and money (soliciting and providing feedback, creating personal work portfolios, and syncing workflows across devices and between programs) and open up modes of flexibility that can be tailored to individual needs.

We’ll also be bringing in guest speakers from outside Adobe who’ll share some of the ways they’ve used Creative Cloud to further their creative work. We’ll wrap-up by answering questions from the audience. We guarantee that people will leave with new information.

In Chicago, our guest speaker will be artist/designer Chuck Anderson of NoPattern; and in Los Angeles we’ll welcome film/TV producer Mick Ebeling. Keep an eye on the CreateNow events site for the remaining inspirational industry speakers we’ve invited.

CreateNow is designed for creative professionals, photographers and photography hobbyists, illustrators, animators, video professionals, and students—in short, anyone who wants to master new skills in design, web and mobile apps, digital imaging, video editing or use Creative Cloud on the job. It’s also a great way for people to discover the potential of the applications in Creative Cloud.

And for anyone who’s used Creative Suite in the past and isn’t familiar with the advantages of membership, CreateNow is the perfect place to learn more. Adobe Creative Cloud provides instant access to our constant stream of innovations, with new additions every month. What people who’ve attended CreateNow say about it:

“Terrifically put together and very professional and polished…”

“It’s great to see creative luminaries and where they’re going with their work, especially when they’re using the same software we’re using. It means it’s within our reach.”

We’re extremely excited to present what’s new and we hope you’ll join us. (Remember, CreateNow events are free but require registration to reserve a spot. Register today:
