That’s right: No computers. No keyboards. And no 30-inch monitors.
Why is Adobe, a company that puts so much passion into making tools for creative expression, headed to Cleveland, Ohio to host Ink Wars, an obviously analog drawing battle?
Well it’s our acknowledgement that art and creativity and insight and inspiration don’t always happen sitting down.
As dedicated as we are to making the best creative software, we know that people need to get away from their computers. That they need to stand. And hold their tools in their hands. And think on their feet. And look for challenges outside of a browser. And be inspired by life and friends and ideas that are around them in the real world.
So even if you’re not participating in Ink Wars, bring your cameras and your hashtags to the Jakprints Stage to cheer for your favorite artist, shout-out encouragement, toss around ideas that might lead to inspiration… and applaud for whoever wins.
Then, you can go home with the solid knowledge that inspiration doesn’t have to come from a web search and creation doesn’t have to be limited to what you can finish in front of a screen.
And, just so you know…
During the conference we’ll be tweeting with #WMCFest from @AdobeCCDesign.
We’ll also have a table in the Gallery all three days of the conference. So come by and say hi. And while you’re around:
* Charge your electronics (We know finding a place to plug-in at conferences can be hard, so we’ve got you covered!)
* Grab a Design Nerd
* Enter to win a one-year Creative Cloud membership
