Adobe Ideas To Undergo A Transformation
How mysterious! The Creative Cloud Team has just posted a vaguely worded message to say that Adobe Ideas (our popular vector drawing app for iPad and iPhone that's been downloaded millions of times already) will soon become a full-featured drawing app, and will still be free. Full details to be announced at MAX. And while I can't spill the beans, I will tell you that I use Ideas, and I have confirmed that one specific enhancement that I was waiting on is indeed in this next version.

Fun Reviewing Awards Submissions
Today I got to spend a few hours reviewing student submissions for our 2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards. In addition to hanging out with some really talented judges, the real treat was seeing some of the absolutely amazing creative submissions. We'll announce winners at MAX in October, but until then I consider myself truly fortunate to have had the chance to review student work that could rival anything created by professionals and studios. Wow!
