Our monthly general interest meetings include educational presentations and networking, focused on current developments in multimedia, web technology, and the digital arts. Now, OCMMA's new Adobe Creative Suite User Group - Orange County (CS-OC) will meet jointly with the General Meeting of OCMMA every third Tuesday of the month.
The goal of this group is to continue to provide local designers and developers with a forum for learning from speakers and from each other about how best to leverage the power of Adobe applications in their business workflows. Meetings will continue to feature presentations by Adobe specialists, business entrepreneurs, camera and hardware pro's, and others. Topics are selected to have broad appeal across the various multimedia disciplines. Cynthia Gordon is the Manager of CS-OC.
In addition, every month we'll dive into some aspect of the Adobe Creative Suite, with a special focus on ways to streamline your workflow and jump back and forth among apps to get your work done. We'll have a special segment at each meeting called: "Creative Suite Treats", where a 5 to 10 minute demo will highlight a particular tool or technique in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Fireworks, etc.
Come at 6 PM for networking and food and soft drinks. The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM.
