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. 

Check out his interview here:

What a week it has been… and it’s only Wednesday! The week kicked off in style, with our CS6 and Creative Cloud launch event at One Marylebone in London.

The historical building was filled with digital clouds; we saw great demos by Adobe’s CTO, Kevin Lynch and heard a fascinating panel discussion with designer extraordinaire Wayne Hemingway, the incomparable illustrator Mr Bingo and breakthrough director Gareth Edwards.

We’ve pulled together a video to give you a flavour of what went on. Enjoy!
