Where I’ll Be in May & June – Creative Days Tour Hits EMEA

Creative Days
It’s that time of year, and another Creative Tour is on the horizon. With AdobeMAX only a few days away, and NAB already weeks behind, it’s clear that the excitement (and travel) will continue–and we couldn’t be happier to be bringing the ‘next’ versions of the Adobe Creative Applications to you.

This year, we have a unified site where you can find all the information you need for each city. I’ve added individual links here so that you can register and come spend some quality time with us, learning about all the new goodies we have to offer in a city near you…

3300+ CreateNow Attendees Can’t Be Wrong! (an Elvis reference)

The word is definitely out; and while the word (according to Beatles legend) is love (and they’re right, it is), the *other* word is Creative Cloud; and our Adobe friends in Europe clearly love it.

Following the successful shows in Warsaw and Oslo, the excitement and enthusiasm continued as we made our way thru London, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki. What was most interesting to us was the universal acceptance of the Creative Cloud and a genuine interest in how it differs from the (previous) ‘boxed product’ experience. Fortunately, we came armed and ready with all the details about the new applications, features and services that we’ve added to the Creative Cloud (since our official launch last May) and that momentum continued as we were able to showcase several new PS features (as of February) and most recently, the addition of Photoshop Touch on the iPhone and Android mobile devices.

A sincere thanks must go out to all of the attendees across the globe, as well as our many colleagues who helped put these incredible events together. This tour really exceeded our expectations, and we’re just so very honored to be able to bring all of these incredible, creative puzzle pieces, all together under one roof. The show continued on (back in the US) in New York, Boston, Seattle, Austin and San Diego with more stops coming! Create now!

On our one day off (in Oslo) we took in some sightseeing...and ice.

‘Create Now’ European Tour Kicks Off With Capacity Crowds

Yesterday marked the first stop of the European ‘Create Now’ Tour and as always, Warsaw proved to be an inspired, awesome crowd with literally every seat in the house filled (and several dozen sitting in or along-side the aisles).

Covering many of the new features brought to Creative Cloud over the past few months, Rufus, Paul and I had the opportunity to showcase new content (all travel themed; largely based around Africa, for which I naturally leveraged even more Sabi Sabi footage) covering workflows for mobile (including the recently released Photoshop Touch for the iPhone and Android devices), design, web and video.

The next show is in Oslo on Monday, and we simply can’t wait to hit the stage again and spread some Create Now/Creative Cloud/CS6 love…and that’s a lot of love to spread!

I just wanted to give a big thanks to all of our fans and users who turned out for the event and made it so special. We always leave so inspired, it truly makes us yearn to return!

Here’s a few snaps from the show. See you on tour, somewhere in the world!

Adobe Creative Cloud and CS6 Tour – Tack Stockholm! Kiitos Helsinki!

This past week concluded with fantastic shows in both Helsinki and Stockholm (the latter of which was a complete sell-out!)

Here’s a short video with a look at the crowds and more info from the customers about what is really resonating with this latest release…

Perhaps not surprisingly, interest in the Creative Cloud continues to be very high, along with the new Touch Apps and even some classic applications like Audition.

This week, we’ll be in Oslo, Prague, Warsaw and Istanbul, with the following week in Kortrijk and Amsteram…and it’s only the beginning.
