The 2017 Adobe Design Achievement Awards have officially kicked off, and whether you’re a creative student, an industry pro, or a seasoned instructor, you’ll want to pay attention to the talent competing for this year’s top prizes.
Lisa Temple is a community innovator for Adobe’s Digital Media business. She leads programs like the Adobe Design Achievement Awards and spearheads forward-thinking initiatives like the Adobe Studio at 1240 Minnesota Street: a reverse residency for Adobe staff with San Francisco artists. She’s lived her entire professional life with one foot in the tech sector, and one foot in the arts; she got her start as a museum educator and exhibit developer and, chances are if you’ve ever taken a museum audio tour in the U.S., Lisa had something to do with it. She’s also a third-generation classical pianist – but in her daydreams she’s the lead singer of a garage rock band.
