Digital Creatives Oxford – What’s new in 2016

Digital Creatives Oxford is an official Adobe User Group hosting free meetings featuring speakers, hot tips, networking and informal pub meetings to link up people with an interest in cutting edge creative practices. Loosely based around the Adobe Creative Cloud offering we look at a range of techniques that these and other tools afford the digital artist.

The group was established in 2008 and continues to grow in popularity. This year we are sad to announce the departure of Glenn Clarkson who has put a huge amount of effort into building the community into what it is today. Many thanks to Glenn and Les for all their hard work and friendship. Best of luck with your move up North.

Plans for the group are to work closer with other related local groups. The third Thursday meeting slot will be shared with the Production Group, we hope this will initiate to some interesting projects and synergies. We also plan to streamline the Adobe Groups by merging Digital Creatives Oxford with Digital Film Editors. This is an attempt to simplify the groups administration and lessen the need for cross posting events.

We look forward to seeing you at future events and suggest you sign up to our Meetup page for future event announcements.
