We’re down in Brighton today for the annual Reasons to be Creative conference, where we’ll be joining the very best of the UK’s creative talent for three days of education and inspiration on the latest trends, tools and techniques from the world of web design, film-making, animation and more.
If you’re heading down here yourself, then you’ll very shortly see our very own Paul Trani hit the stage for the opening keynote where he’ll be setting the tone for the event with a discussion around creativity and a demonstration of how creative ideas can be brought to life through tools such as Creative Cloud, both now and in the future.
Not only that, we’re also giving delegates 50 ‘reasons to be creative’ as we’re running a competition to give away 50 Adobe bean bags during the conference. All you have to do to enter, is tweet us on @AdobeUK telling us what inspires your creativity – and make sure you include the #reasonsto hashtag. The competition opens at 10am today and closes at 1pm on Wednesday 4th September. We’ll be notifying the winners by 2pm and they’ll have until 3pm to collect their beanbag. Remember, only delegates can participate – so if you’re not going but you know someone who is, then let them know they could be in with a chance of winning. Full T’s and C’s available here.
If you can’t make it down, then be sure to follow @AdobeUK for all the latest news from the conference – plus we’ll be live tweeting from @AdobeUK during Paul’s keynote between 10am and 11am this morning.

Red Bull, in partnership with Adobe, has just made art history! And we’re inviting members of the public to be part of it when it hits London as part of a three day exhibition from 5 – 7 June 2013. After taking in LA, Oslo and Mexico City, London will host the Red Bull Collective Art exhibition, in partnership with Adobe, at Red Bull Studios, London Bridge. The exhibition is free of charge and open 11am – 5pm each day.
But what is it all about? Well, in a nutshell, more than 2,000 individual pieces of artwork (90% of which, were created using tools available in Adobe Creative Cloud) have been brought together to create one piece of ‘collective art’ measuring a massive 1.3km in length – that’s 500m longer than the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.
Back in February, we announced our partnership with Red Bull Collective Art, a project which gave creative talent from across the globe – including everyone from designers and artists, to photographers and publicists – the chance to take part in creating the biggest and most original piece of artwork the world has ever seen.
The project saw contributions from 85 countries and brought ‘Cadavre Exquís’ into the digital age by layering multiple pieces of art created by different people to make one collective piece. Of the 2,000 people that took part, 500 submissions were from the UK, testament to the extraordinary creativity of our nation. Each contributor had one hour to put their artistic stamp on the final piece of artwork, which is now being exhibited in a variety of unique settings around the world, giving members of the public the opportunity to see this ground-breaking piece of art.
To learn more about the project, you can visit the website where you can browse and interact with the inspirational pieces of art from around the globe. You can also follow the social journey using #CreateNow and #RedBullCollectiveArt.
