To keep their creative juices flowing, creative professionals need the occasional infusion of inspiration. That’s exactly why Adobe created their annual MAX conference: to give creative professionals the opportunity to come together to learn, network, and get inspired. Distillery Senior UI Designer Luciana Flora and Junior UI Designer Mariana Herrera are excited to attend the 2018 conference, which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from October 15th through the 17th.
MAX participants perfect their skills, get inspired, and explore what’s next for the creative community. They also have the opportunity to learn from and network with their design heroes and peers. Annually, the conference brings together graphic, web, UX, and multidisciplinary designers; art and creative directors; illustrators; video, film, and motion graphics professionals; photographers; tech and business strategists; Adobe Creative Cloud partners; and others interested in Adobe products.
This year’s schedule is packed full with sessions focused on sharing practical tips, inspiration, and personal design stories. Session speakers feature more than 170 luminaries and visionaries from across the design community. Keynote speakers and celebrity hosts include entertainment industry legend Ron Howard; musician and designer Questlove; comic book artist Nicola Scott; photographer Albert Watson; YouTube force Lilly Singh; and actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish.
If past experience is any indication, this year’s event should prove immensely rewarding for Luciana and Mariana. The MAX 2017 conference featured more than 300 sessions, labs, workshops, and pre-conference events. Survey results from participants showed that 96% of them learned new skills they could apply in their work, and 95% were inspired to build innovative projects. In fact, some past attendees have called MAX the best creative networking event they’ve ever attended.
