This year team Yes were excited to be a part of Adobe Max 2018, the 3 day conference took place in sunny LA where Martin taught three awesome creative LAB sessions: illustrating friendly  monsters and villains! both Emily and Shumi were also teaching assistance. We will be sharing the workflow on our YouTube channel in November so we will keep you posted on that!

We left Adobe Max feeling extremely inspired, we met so many awesome creatives, tried out many new features and got a sneak peak into what to expect from Adobe creative cloud 2019 and in the near future!

We have been releasing new videos to show you all the the tools and features in the CC 2019 update!

Adobe Illustrator new features

Adobe Photoshop new features

Adobe InDesign new features

Other than the software updates, Adobe announced new products they are currently working on which will make our creative process efficient and productive! Here are some of our favourites!

1) Photoshop for iPad

We will finally have the full Photoshop application available on the iPad, so you can design on the go! This will be available sometime in 2019, sign up to get access as soon it become available!

2) Project Gemini

Adobe announced a new mobile and drawing application which will allow us on draw in vector and raster format as well as use realistic traditional media brushes such as oil paint and watercolor! Martin will be doing the beta testing soon, so expect tutorials on this too!

3) Premiere Rush CC

If you are looking for simplified editing software that allows you to quickly create videos for social media such as Instagram then try Rush which is available for both mobile and desktop!
