Did you use your real FIRST AND LAST NAME when completing your Meetup profile and asking to join this group? (real as in "John Doe" but not "Tricky Z", etc.) -- we have real people in our group, not pseudonyms! :)

Please tell us a little about yourself. What kind of work do you do? Why are you interested in the group? What do you want to see here? (hint: spammers and scammers will never answer this question accurately).

Student at Centriq and Doug H was telling about the future of Design.
Our group was founded in 2007 as one of four official Adobe groups in Kansas City. We're designers, developers, digital photographers, freelancers, producers, in-house corporate marketing types, and interested students of all ages — focusing mostly on visually-oriented products in the entire Adobe Creative Suite and Creative Cloud, with a strong emphasis on Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and other tools with a visual emphasis. NO program is off-limits, though...if it's visual, we'll talk about it!
We usually meet on the FIRST TUESDAY of every month, but sometimes special events will change that schedule so always check the web site to see where our next meeting will be!
In early 2013, we made Centriq Training our new monthly home. Centriq is located directly across from the Ward Parkway Shopping Center at 8700 State Line (2nd floor). Our primary local sponsor, TEK Systems, provides our members with plenty of Kansas City-based employment opportunities for user experience designers, front-end developers, and other positions in contract and contract-to-hire positions. They are a generous sponsor of our group and have been for many years.
Adobe provides us with great presentations, speakers, and prizes. If you're a regular participant in our group, you're very likely to take home some fantastic goodies. Twice a year, we are authorized to give away an entire year's subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud service — basically "everything Adobe puts out for creatives" on a membership basis. Additionally, throughout the year we have books, t-shirts, software, and evaluation items for our members...these giveaways are based on your attendance and participation.
Whether you're just starting out with Adobe tools or you're an experienced designer, we look forward to welcoming you to our community. It's a lot of fun and nobody walks away empty-handed!
(Due to the proliferation of spammers and scammers, we've had to resort to approving new members on an as-requested basis rather than letting Meetup auto-join new people. To join our group, we ask that you please use a "real" name and a "real" photo of yourself -- our group is composed of real people, not flowers, pets, or abstract designs. You're a visual type, but here's your chance to show us what YOU look like. Thanks for your understanding!)
