The Adobe Creative Suite User Group of Denver was established to provide anyone interested in Adobe software in the metro area a venue for networking, roundtable discussions and learning what's new in Adobe software. Adobe Software we currently cover in this meetup: Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe InDesign. We are looking for an expert in Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver who would like to contribute to this group.
While most of our meetups are free, we do offer paid classes for those who are looking to learn a particular software in the suite in a quick, hands-on 2 or 3 day class. As a member of this group, you will be offered discounts on these classes on a regular basis. More information on these classes can be found at http://www.vpclasses.com . YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND A PAID CLASS TO BE A PART OF THIS GROUP—THERE ARE NO REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN OR MAINTAIN MEMBERSHIP IN THIS MEETUP.
We will also have free meetups on design topics such as typography, color, generating creative ideas, etc...This year I want to bring in guest speakers, add more sponsors to our site (see left column) and add another group organizer who is knowledgable about the Adobe software that I'm not as strong in—my speciality is Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.
I am open to suggestions for meetup ideas— this is your meetup group so let's make it GREAT!
