I have joined Adobe

After many weeks of careful consideration and talks with colleague experts I have very recently decided to accept an offer from Adobe to join their team as a Solutions Consultant. For this position I’ll be active in the Benelux region in Europe (Belgium/Netherlands/Luxemburg) helping business clients choose the right set of Adobe design products to meet their objectives. But there’s a lot more of course. And to help everyone understand my decision better I would like to explain what motivated me. Continue reading I have joined Adobe

It’s official! I’ll be speaking again at PePcon 2015 (the Print and ePublishing Conference) in Philadelphia, PA.  If you’re into print or digital publishing I’d highly recommend you jump on a plane and get to Philadelphia to attend my session.

Speaking at Adobe User Group Belgium meeting, Brussels

Next week, on Jan 27th, I’ll be presenting 2 sessions at the next Adobe User Group Belgium meeting in Brussels. During these sessions I’ll introduce Adobe Edge Animate and show how to create simple or more advanced HTML animations. This is a general introduction to Edge Animate and will be perfect for anyone who hasn’t tried the software before, or isn’t sure what it can do.

As a follow up session I’ll be showing off how to build interactive websites without writing code using Adobe Muse . I really love Adobe Muse and think it’s a great tool for designers who want to create web pages but don’t want to get into code writing.

Attending these sessions is free of course and you can find more information here.

Adobe dropping DPS Single Edition

Adobe drops support for Adobe DPS Single Edition apps

Adobe DPS MnemonicStarting May 1, 2015, Adobe will no longer support Adobe DPS Single Edition apps via or through your Creative Cloud license. And on December 4, 2014, Adobe will also remove DPS Single Edition as a purchasable product from To most people this change will come as a surprise, especially since there’s been more competition than ever from third-party solutions for creating apps from Adobe InDesign. Adobe DPS Single Edition (SE) has always been a great selling point for Creative Cloud licenses and seeing it disappear soon is inevitably going to lead to disappointment with clients and designers. After all it has been available since 2011. It was a way for small design firms or freelancers to create and build apps for clients and expand their range of services as an agency. The demand for digital publications has only increased over the last year and I think DPS SE was a great way for people to get into DPS, or digital publishing in general, for the first time.

My Adobe MAX 2014 report

My Adobe MAX 2014 report

I just got back from my first Adobe MAX 2014 in Los Angeles and have to say I was impressed with the event organisation. Long time ago I attended the only 2 MAX editions that were organised in Europe. These were in Barcelona 2007 and Milan 2008. But the original MAX in L.A. is a whole different ball game. The scale of the event was a lot larger and felt better organised and more professional. Just like the previous years Adobe chose the L.A. Convention Center as their primary location for all the networking, sessions and hands-on labs. While the main keynotes and “Sneaks” were held in the Nokia Theatre across the street. And these facilities were easily able to hold the nearly 5.000 attendees while keeping them happy and entertained. Here’s my Adobe MAX 2014 report. Continue reading My Adobe MAX 2014 report
