By Terri Stone, Online Community Manager, Creative Suite
Hey designers! There’s a new app in town, and it’s called Adobe SWAPP. Think of this multi-issue iPad publication as a community-driven swap meet, where Creative Suite users trade tips, tricks, and inspiration.
Contributing to SWAPP is a great way to promote yourself, since every tutorial ends with a full-page author profile. You can use that profile to show people your creative work; link to your website and social media accounts; advertise your products or services; and more.
To be a part of SWAPP, simply download the professionally designed templates from http://bit.ly/AdobeSWAPPmeet and follow the instructions. No coding required! Plus, you can use the templates and accompanying assets in any other personal or commercial project.
After you submit a folio, we’ll make sure your tutorial works with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. Then we’ll combine it with other community-created tutorials and submit the issue to the iTunes App Store. Meanwhile, you can just sit back and wait for your genius to be seen by millions.
As an online community manager at Adobe, Terri Stone feels lucky to be paid to interact with some of the most creative, smart people around. Before joining Adobe earlier this year, she was the long-time editor in chief of CreativePro.com and its sister publication, InDesign Magazine.
