CS6 launch event review, Adobe Creative Week and September

We had a great evening at Headington Hill Hall with comrades in arms, the Production Premium group and the Flash group. 46 of us filled the room to listen to Iona Walters presentation on Production Premium CS6 features, and Richard Curtis‘ Photoshop presentation. Great to see so many new faces, and thanks to Richard and Iona for travelling out to see us – it was much appreciated.
Gem de Silva was the lucky winner of a copy of Adobe Production Premium CS6.

July 9 – 13th is Adobe’s  first ever UK Creative Week.

Adobe Creative Week

It’s all online, with interactive debates, lively discussions and in-depth demonstrations broadcast live online.
With creative luminaries, tech experts and special guests we’ll be discussing where the creative industries are heading – and who’s in danger of getting left behind.
You can dip in and dip out whenever you want – just make sure you don’t miss out!  Keep up to date here.

We’re off for the summer, but back on September 20th for our first meeting of the autumn. Watch this space for news of speaker/topic, sign up for our mailing list and RSVP and check out past meeting attendees at: http://www.meetup.com/Digital-Creatives-Oxford/
