The Business of Creativity: Adobe Document Cloud at Adobe MAX

by Dan Puterbaugh

posted on 10-03-2018

When creatives gather in Los Angeles for Adobe MAX from October 15 to 17 (with a preconference from October 13 to 14) they will be exposed to cutting-edge tools and technology from Adobe that help them create. But the creative process also requires sharing, collaboration, review, and signing contracts. That’s where Adobe Document Cloud comes in.

Adobe Acrobat is the second most used application within Creative Cloud, and when you think about the real business of being a creative, it isn’t hard to see why. Need to send an illustration to a client that doesn’t have Illustrator? PDF it. Need to let a client markup a draft without giving them access to the source files? Upload it to our new Review tool and let them mark it up in real time. Finally, need to get a new project underway with all the right legal terms in place? Execute it in record time with Adobe Sign.

To help you understand how this year’s Adobe MAX events can help you take care of business so you can get back to creating, we’ve highlighted talks by creatives and experts that will show you how you can make how you get business done every bit as compelling as what you create:
