From Print to Web in a flash

Adobe and HOW magazine challenged some of our favorite designers to transform their existing print work into immersive, interactive projects for the web using Flash Catalyst CS5, and the results are stunning. HOW’s September/October issue is just now hitting the stands, and the interactive results, along with commentary from the designers, can be viewed here.

Adobe Tools and HTML5/CSS3

Two of the people behind the products in Creative Suite have started a blog specifically about design and web technologies.

We have been spending a lot of time internally thinking about how our tools can best support and take advantage of some of the new functionality in HTML 5, and we wanted to share a couple of early ideas with you.

I’ve always thought that once HTML5 got a bit more concrete, you’d see design tools from Adobe that took advantage of it. The benefit of Flash is that we control the runtime and can tie features to the development cycle of our tools. Not the case with HTML5 and CSS3. But now that the standards have started to coalesce and have support in more browsers, we can make those features part of our design tools. Hopefully we’ll see a lot more of the examples above and I’d encourage you to keep an eye on the blog for info about design tools at Adobe and the web.
