Adobe Stories: One Artist, Many Tools

Graphic designer and freelance animator Lee Daniels has a sly sense of humor that comes out as soon as you look at his still images and animated cartoons.

Lee’s Adobe Story begins and ends with the Adobe Creative Suite, or as he puts it, “all and everything I need to be a fully-functioning media creative competing in the modern world.” As a solo freelancer, the Suite gives Lee flexibility to jump in and out of many different programs while working on a project, all right from his small home studio. Maybe more importantly, with the Suite Lee can express his creativity.

“There’s no easy way to describe why the need to create is there or why it makes you miss your desk, like no other occupation, when you’re not sat in front of it,” he explains.

You can read more of Lee’s story here, and enjoy his video “Clearance” below.
