Thursday Night: Women Rule

Tonight: Women Rule

Adobe Presents the Backstory: ADC Young Guns Live

A four-part lecture series exploring the work, history, hurdles, goals and aspirations of ADC Young Guns.

Five female Young Guns — one from each ADC YG class — have taken very different paths, made tough choices, and carved out fulfilling careers in a challenging industry. These creative stars will share their work, their visions of the future, and open their portfolios for a peak inside.

Prior to each evening's program, Adobe presents a one-hour tutorial on Adobe® Creative Suite® 3 Design Premium, led by Adobe Certified Trainer Scott Citron. Design content for today — and tomorrow — with Adobe® Creative Suite® 3 Design Premium software. Design Premium combines all-new versions of essential tools for professional page layout, image editing, illustration, and Adobe PDF workflows with new tools for creating engaging websites, interactive experiences, and mobile content.
