Our Creative Camp at this year’s SXSW Interactive has officially come to a close. It was a great day filled with rich content and good conversations with attendees. Here’s a quick recap of the day’s highlights.

We started off the day with our tradition, the 5th annual bacon breakfast. You can’t start a productive day without a good breakfast, right? Then, worldwide evangelist Paul Trani jumped into the latest tools and services available in the Adobe Creative Cloud. Paul showed us how individuals and teams can create and collaborate in the Cloud. Then, he showed us how easily we can add animation and interactivity with Edge Animate.

Then, Product Manager Jacob Surber shared the development principles behind the creation of Adobe Edge Reflow. Jacob showed us all the iterations of Reflow’s UI, starting with today and going backwards all the way to the beginning.

Next, we hosted a panel on the realities and challenges of responsive design today with talented panelists: Sophie ShepherdTrent Walton, and Emily Wengert.

Last, Adobe’s Alex Morris presented a session on the “Content shaped elephant in the room.” How can web designers think content first, while reflecting the intent of your message?

Highlight of the day? Probably Jacob’s shirt, “Friends don’t let friends fix widths.”

Graphic Designers Now Able to Create Mobile Websites with Adobe Muse

Today’s Creative Cloud announcements include a significant update to Adobe Muse, the software that enables users to create and publish distinctive, professional HTML websites without writing code.

We are excited to announce that graphic designers can now create unique tablet and smartphone versions of their websites using new mobile features in Adobe Muse.

This update is a direct response to customer demands for mobile device support. Mobile-friendly websites are vital for businesses today – IDC estimates that by 2015 more end users will access the Internet through a mobile device than a PC. Because of this, designers and their clients are realizing the need to provide an optimal viewing experience whether sites are viewed on a large monitor while sitting at a desk or on a smaller screen while on-the-go.

New features in Adobe Muse include:

Mobile Layout Options: Select a tablet or smartphone layout in the planning stage, and define the site plan and master pages to create unique layouts for each.

Mobile Content and Style Options: Design the content and style of each experience.

Touch-Enabled Interactivity: Link phone numbers to automatically dial when tapped, email addresses to open an email client with the “To” address already filled in.

Gesture-enabled widgets: Copy and paste Adobe Muse widgets in mobile layouts – site menu navigation, slideshows, page-swipes, and more will work automatically, with the touch of a finger.

Adobe Muse is available in Adobe Creative Cloud or as a single app membership. Designers can choose to publish their websites with Adobe Business Catalyst and take advantage of some hosting that is included with membership, or they can host with a provider of their choice.
