Kids grow up these days taking a lot of things for granted. The electricity that comes out of the wall, the gasoline in our cars and the steel in our skyscrapers are all just there and have been for so long it doesn’t seem like any big deal. I don’t even know if we teach kids about the history of these and other industries — much of it would seem like ancient history I suspect, and does it really matter how electricity is made or what goes on in a steel mill? Kids these days are probably a lot more interested in how iPhones are made.
This week I've had the privilege to be at Adobe in San Jose learning Creative Suite 6. Yesterday was the day to learn the design tools, specifically Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and a new product called Adobe Muse. (More on the products tomorrow.)
The day I arrived at Adobe was the day the Creative Suite 6 shipped and made available for purchase. The atmosphere at Adobe was what's best described as exhilarated yet exhausted. In the front lobby were cupcakes decorated with the logos of CS6 products. The cupcake selection was picked over. Only one tired CS6 suite cupcake remained.
As part of the launch of Creative Suite 6, Adobe reported the results of a study it commissioned about creativity in global economies. The study, entitled State of Create, sought to discover the attitudes people have about creativity and the extent to which they feel they are able to express their creativity.
