Adobe Creative Meetup 2015 Stockholm

Last week, top creative pros got together for Adobe’s #CreativeMeetUp in Stockholm to get inspired and talk Creative Cloud mobile to desktop workflows. Here’s a summary of what they got up to.

The 162 guests were took part (and had a lot of fun) in hands-on creative workshops in collaboration with some of the most prominent actors of the design industry and produced some amazing designs.

Tattoo workshop

Attendees worked alongside members of tattoo parlour Salong Betong and creative production partner Bsmart to create their very own hand-drawn tattoo transferred via the app Adobe Capture CC and see what it would look on their body via Photoshop CC manipulation.

After Effects workshop

The media production company Chimneys showed how After Effects and a green screen could turn the attendees into actors collect clouds and reaching out for flying popcorn.

Beer labels workshop

The third workshop was all about designing cool beer labels for Pang Pang beer bottles. In collaboration with the super talented people from the Finnish creative agency Kokoro & Moi, attendees created beer labels, stuck them to their bottles, admired their work and then quickly drank the result!
