We see it everyday. Heck, we showcase it daily on our Facebook and Twitter pages. But looking at it just never gets old. The Adobe Ideas team is continually amazed and inspired by the illustrators and artists who use our app.
When we recently added support for two of the top styluses in the market (Pogo’s Connect and Wacom’s Intuos Creative Stylus), Adobe Ideas users were thrilled. The pressure sensitivity of the styluses added increased precision that changed the drawing experience.
It’s why, today, we’re so excited to announce support for Adonit’s Jot Touch 4 and Jot Script styluses: Two new choices for Adobe Ideas users. The Jot Touch 4 provides great pressure sensitivity for artists who demand accuracy and control. For users who want to see their lines clearly, as they’re drawing, the thin-tip Pixelpoint™ technology of the Jot Script provides accuracy that mimics traditional drawing with pen and paper.
The Jot Touch 4 retails for $89.99 and the Jot Script for $74.99; they can be purchased in Adonit’s web store.
Adobe Ideas is still the only vector drawing application with Illustrator compatibility. Couple it with a Creative Cloud membership to sync Ideas artwork to the Cloud and open and refine it in Illustrator CC.
Update Adobe Ideas today in the iTunes App Store (while you’re there, take a minute to review it). Don’t have it yet? What are you waiting for? It’s free!
To coincide with the launch of the new Creative Cloud apps, we paid tribute to the late, great Charles Eames by hosting our own Eames’ Chair Remix contest. The task: take the iconic Eames chair and using Adobe products (Illustrator and Photoshop) personalize a digital version and share it with us and the Behance community.
Among the impressive and creative entries we received (check them all out below), we’re excited to announce that ANDESIGN is our grand prize winner and will be receiving an Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Armchair, one year membership to Creative Cloud and an Eames poster for his impressive “Eames Nest” design.
Also, did you know that we put six top designers to the test as well? See what impressive designs they came up with.

Imagine a design studio. You’ll most likely default to thinking of a cool, hip office filled with tons of creative individuals. Now take that concept and turn it on its head. What do you end up with? The design studio that re-imagined our Creative Cloud logo, Vasava Studios.
Far from a traditional design studio, Vasava does not specialize in anything. In fact, they like to experiment. Each member has the taste for the unexpected and selects projects that may test their creative abilities. Enric Godes states it best when he says, “It’s not a money driving company, but a company driven by passion.” Top that off with a balance between old school and new school styles of design coming together (there is a father/son duo working at Vasava) and you have one of the most unique studios ever.
Bruno Sellés, a partner at Vasava Studios, believes inspiration happens outside of the office. Once he hits the streets of Barcelona, inspiration strikes and his creative process takes off. Creative Cloud plays a huge roll here, because it gives everyone the ability to create wherever. Having the ability to begin a project on Adobe Ideas while commuting to work, uploading it to the cloud and then further refining and finalizing in Illustrator in the studio really opened Bruno’s eyes to how Creative Cloud has taken creativity to a whole new level.
