Creative Talent in the UK

4 UK Design Award Winners

The recently announced Adobe Design Achievement Awards are further evidence that the UK really does have creative talent and is a worldwide centre of excellence. In the 13 categories the UK can boast 4 winners.

Full details of the awards can be found at: http://www.adobeawards.com/uk/

Winning projects were selected from 41 finalists out of nearly 5,000 total entries from 70 countries. Student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists were invited to submit individual or group projects created with Adobe software. Winning students were recognized in 13 categories encompassing interactive media, video and motion, and traditional media; educators were recognized in three categories celebrating innovative teaching methods.

“In a globally competitive world, students who can express their ideas and solve problems in creative ways will be the most successful,” said Jon Perera, vice president of education at Adobe. “Recognizing top talent among next-generation designers is part of a broader commitment at Adobe to fostering creative thinking and expression in education.”

Judging panel member Fernanda Saboia, creative director at Tatil Design, said, “Students’ accessibility to technology gives them so much freedom to test, experiment and really take risks in their efforts to create something very original. It is so beneficial for students to get recognition like this at the beginning of their career as it gives them the confidence to continue to innovate and push the boundaries of self-expression.”

ZDNet Education: Adobe Nails the Value Question

Yesterday (April 25)  of ZDNet Education published an article entitled:

Adobe nails the value question with Creative Cloud and announces scholarships to boot

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/education/adobe-nails-the-value-question-with-creative-cloud-and-announces-scholarships-to-boot/4884

Here’s the complete article which although from a self-confessed Adobe fan, puts the creative cloud into perspective from an Education point of view.

Summary: Adobe released important research on the value of creativity worldwide; at the same time, they put their money where their mouth is, making Adobe’s Creative Suite much more affordable for schools and students.

Full disclosure: I love Adobe Products, even if they are pricey
I make no secret of my love for Adobe products. I use Creative Suite 5.5 every day and as I dive deeper into the applications and become really proficient with Photoshop and InDesign in particular, I find them utterly indispensable. Their recent Touch Apps for both iOS and Android are incredibly useful creation tools for capturing ideas as you have them and the Photoshop CS6 beta has been flooring me since it was released.

I’ve also not pulled any punches in my assessment of their pricing, whether academic or professional. Of course, as my old economics teacher used to ask the class, “How much should you charge for a product?” We’d all answer in unison, “As much as the market will bear”. Clearly, the market will bear a hefty price for industry-standard content creation tools.

Adobe tools are great, but price and learning curves have kept them from the mainstream
In education, that market has generally been limited to vocational technical high schools and colleges that require the software for specific majors or programs. However, with Monday’s announcement of Creative Suite CS6 and their related Creative Cloud offering, Adobe has taken some very big steps towards making their state-of-the-art software available to a much wider audience in education (and, for that matter, in general).

With Creative Cloud, price is much less of a barrier
When Adobe first briefed me on everything that was included in their Creative Cloud subscriptions for students and teachers, I was floored. Current Creative Suite customers can subscribe for just $30 a month (with a one-year commitment); students and teachers can access the same pricing regardless of whether they currently have licensed copies of the Suite. Creative Cloud isn’t exactly new (it’s been around since Adobe introduced their Touch Apps, which leverage cloud storage to pass images and files between tablet apps and desktop applications), but this new subscription now includes access to the entire CS6 Master Collection (normally almost $2600 to purchase outright or $800 for students and teachers).

It also includes access to all of the Touch Apps for Android (iOS apps to follow soon; these are normally $10 a piece), Muse (the most powerful WYSIWYG web design tool I’ve ever seen, which had previously been announced as abandoned, but I’m thrilled that it’s now under active development again; it’s in beta preview currently, but will formally be included in Creative Cloud subscriptions later this year), and cloud storage and syncing (20 GB with subscription). Perhaps even more interestingly for students, Creative Cloud comes with rapid updates to software, new software (like the full version of Adobe Edge when it becomes available), and the latest available tools from the company, meaning that students can walk out of school with the absolute latest skills to take into the job market.

The value of creativity
Adobe also released the results of the “State of Create” study that it conducted this year. The study was conducted among “5,000 adults, 1,000 per country, in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan. The research was designed to identify attitudes and beliefs about creativity and provide insights into the role of creativity in business, education and society.”

You can read the study for yourself, but bottom line, adults generally value creativity and believe that it’s key to economic success, but also feel that our educational institutions are stifling creativity. Only one in four people believe they are living up to their creative potential.

To help address this gap between our creative potential and our creative actions, Adobe also announced a million dollar scholarship fund for high school seniors “around the world who participate in the Adobe Youth Voices program, the scholarship will help them go to the next level with their education, pursue creative careers and find innovative ways to improve their communities.”

Aside from the fact that the beta version of Photoshop CS6 so far has proved to be a truly brilliant and incredibly versatile tool, Adobe seems to have hit one out of the park with the entire Creative Cloud proposition. The commitment to education in particular and the overall elevation of creative and knowledge economy pursuits is incredibly compelling.

Education Resources for CS6

With the announcement of Adobe Creative Suite 6 and the Creative Cloud, the Adobe Education Exchange is brimming with great new content produced by Adobe, Adobe Education Leaders, and other contributors. Much of this content is featured on a special page dedicated to CS6 for easy access. With CS6 and the supporting resources, you can be fully equipped to engage students in learning, unleash creativity, and prepare them for career success.

The materials cover an assortment of CS6 products and topics. For example, here is a video overview of the Mobile Content Simulator:  Flash Professional CS6

Rich, topical content like this is typical of what you will find in the Education Exchange. Here are some others:

 There are also a variety of product-focused  technical guides to quickly get up to speed on how to use CS6 and links to other great content surrounding this new collection of professional software.

All you need to join the Education Exchange is a free Adobe ID. Anyone can contribute.

A few highlights of what we launched yesterday:

  • Adobe Digital Careers CS6 curriculum – 3 year-long, project based curriculums for design, web, and video, updated to include new CS6 features.
    • We produced 3 curriculums with a total of 25 projects and 289 technical guides, presentations, and asset files. There is also a British English/A4 paper size version of each document in the curriculums.
    • The Digital Design: Foundations of Web Design curriculum was completely rewritten with new projects that align with HTML5 and CSS3 web standards and a new focus for using Flash for game design and mobile application design and development. 
  • Learn CS6 guides – brand new for this year, we removed the technical guides from the curriculums and repackaged them for educators to learn how to use CS6 or for educators to use in developing their own curriculum. This is a simple, but extremely important way to support a larger constituency, including self-learners (particularly Higher Education faculty) and software training programs. Think of each of these as a mini-Classroom in a Book that is free!
  • Adobe TV CS6 shows – new video tutorial shows that align to our CS6 curriculum have been launched and will continue to be updated as more CS6 content becomes available on Adobe TV. 
  • Tutorials from our Adobe Education Leaders – many of our AELs stepped up to the plate to create some amazing resources for CS6 and this content will be invaluable as we seek to get the broader AEE community involved in developing CS6 focused resources.

According to David Holzemer at Carnegie Mellon University e-learning and media design, “Adobe Creative Suite 6 software is a real game changer for us.
