Site of the Week: Nike Air website

Another nice Nike site to check out for nice/seamless video integration -

http://www.nike.com/nikeair/us/

The effect on the “shoes” section of the site is quite nice.

What do you want in the Studio, Production Suite and/or Creative Suite box? Take a survey…

We’d like your input on the resources we offer to help you learn Adobe products. To learn about how you like to learn – we created a survey. It only takes a few minutes, and it will influence what we offer in the suite boxes.

Go to the CS product page, and click “What’s in the Box?”
(Or this should work as a direct link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=376562316096)

From the survey:

Help us create better resources for your learning needs. Please take a quick survey on the materials you’d like to see in the Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Production Studio and Macromedia Studio boxes.
