In the lead up to the UK’s first Creative Week on 9th – 13th July, we’re going to be hosting weekly Twitter Chats, in partnership with Future Publishing. This Thursday, between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, we’ll be kicking these Chats off by talking all things design and publishing, and we want you to let us know your thoughts on the industry and where it’s headed.

It’s well documented that the design and publishing industry is going through a huge period of change, driven by the explosion in digital publishing and accelerated by the surge in popularity of tablets and mobile devices. But what does the industry look like from your point of view? Some of the topics up for discussion include;

  • Where should digital publishing develop next?
  • How can (print) designers evolve to adapt to digital publishing workflows?
  • What still excites you about print, and what does it take for a print product to attract your attention in a digital world?

Join in our Twitter Chat by using #CreativeWeekUK and follow @AdobeUK, @ComputerArts, @CA_Collection and @CreativeBloQ to see the conversation starters, as well as interesting views from our Adobe Solutions Consultants.

Plus, everyone who uses #CreativeWeekUK will automatically be in with a chance of winning one of two tickets to the Design and Publishing day of Creative Week on Tuesday July 10th, which will be jam-packed with exclusive demos, lively debates, creative challenges and inspirational case studies!

Don’t worry, if you aren’t one of the lucky ticket holders you don’t have to miss out as we’ll be broadcasting all the sessions live online, so why not register now?

The name Wayne Hemingway might ring just a few bells – the top English designer and co-founder of Red or Dead has long been a real trailblazer for British creativity. We were lucky enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to get his views on all things creative, why Britain is a creative force to be reckoned with, how digital is democratising design and what part Adobe plays in helping the fashion industry move forward.
