At Adobe, we understand that content is the life blood of customer experience. Now that our world is more connected than ever, it is important to be able to quickly create and reiterate customer experiences, and a big part of that is making sure customers receive the right content across the entire customer journey. App-like and immersive experiences are now a must, and at the center of this effort are developers.

However, developers are struggling to deliver cohesive content across every touch point (modern web, smart watches, native apps, etc.). …


As a creative leader, it’s important to ask yourself several crucial questions. What kind of people do you want on your team? Those team members, do you want them to have their own ideas? Or do you want people that take your ideas and develop them, instead? These are difficult questions to tackle in the best of times; to build and thrive as a design team amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to focus on a few core leadership principles and be flexible and adaptable with others.

More than 10 million people are living with Parkinson’s Disease worldwide, according to the Parkinson’s Foundation. Early detection of the disease, which can cause tremors and make it very difficult to walk or move, can mean access to medications that can dramatically slow the progression of the disease. But long before most people will ever talk to their doctor about the possibility of having Parkinson’s Disease, they may show symptoms; changes in their posture, gait, and movement. Catching these changes is crucial to getting an early diagnosis.

Tripleblack Agency’s app, Patana AI, uses AI and machine learning technology to help with the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease. It was designed entirely in Adobe XD.

Design systems are everywhere these days. It seems like every big brand now has one, and for good reason. They can save design-led companies countless hours of manual design work, freeing up designers to devote their time to more creative or innovative goals, and can also help brands create cohesive experiences for their user base; but they can also go off the rails easily without the right stewardship. …


An update from QueerTech founders Naoufel Testaouni and Andy Saldana.

2019 was a momentous year for QueerTech. It was our first full year as a non-profit, and the year we truly ‘grew up,’ putting a stake in the ground about who we are, the values we stand for, and what we’re going to do to grow, foster, and support our dynamic community of queer and trans people working in tech in Montréal and New York City. First and foremost, thank you to those of you out there that have helped us get to this point — the members, corporate partners, and volunteers that have given their time and resources. …


To be on the cutting edge of design means embracing the dual nature of design itself; successful designers are constantly called to embrace new technologies while staying grounded in their mission to solve the very human problems we face. As innovators around the world are pushing the limits of new technologies, designers are right there with them; and, if you ask many design leaders, the importance of design in our world continues to grow by the day.

As we kick off 2020, we’re taking a close look at the biggest trends and technologies facing designers. Voice interfaces are taking on…

UX design is at a pivotal point in its development as an industry; never before have the contributions of designers been so highly valued, and you can see designers playing key roles in the development of every kind of product and service imaginable. But as the discipline of UX design has gained importance, so has the need for designers to come together to discuss and determine the best ways to solve the key problems facing the industry (and society in general).

In order to truly be creative, you need the right creative tools. Often, for many artists and designers, that means working with Adobe Creative Cloud apps and services — using them together to produce amazing visuals, videos, app and web experiences, and sometimes all of the above. Adobe’s users are nimble, looking at Creative Cloud’s ecosystem and learning new apps to achieve their creative goals. Adobe’s teams, on the other hand, don’t always work this fluidly across products.

3D and immersive design is not exactly an emerging field — the concepts, workflows, and end results have been around in the commercial and art worlds for some time. But there is a major change in the works in the industry: never before has it been easier for digital creatives to access the tools they need to design in 3D and augmented reality (AR), and that is shaking up the industry in new and exciting ways.

Adobe Aero, along with Adobe Dimension and Substance by Adobe, made a big splash on the floor of the Community Pavilion at Adobe MAX 2019. 3D and AR design leaders who attended MAX say the industry has grown considerably in just a short time.

At Adobe MAX 2019, held in Los Angeles in early November, 3D and AR references were everywhere. Of course, there was the much-anticipated launch…
