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

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.

To kick off the video series I decided to show you how to recreate the famous Star Wars intro, just using Smart Objects.
