KCDesignCore December meeting: Potluck dinner, demo night, BIG giveaway!
Let's relax and have show and tell! Our annual potluck and demo night in December gives everyone the chance to see others' work and to have the chance to win valuable prizes! We will spend the evening sharing a potluck dinner, seeing what everyone's been up to during the past year, and exploring new tools and techniques with Creative Cloud. This is our "annual demo night" and it also gives us the chance to give away a complete year's subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud to one lucky winner. When you RSVP, tell us what food you're bringing, and, if you'd like to demo, what you're willing to show and tell. Here's how to get more chances to win... • Just by showing up, you'll receive a raffle ticket. • Having earned one for each meeting you've attended since June, those raffle tickets will be added to the pile. • If you bring at least one food item for the potluck, you'll receive an additional raffle ticket. • If you give a demo of something you've worked on, are currently learning, or just want to show off a technique or tool you've discovered, you'll receive an additional raffle ticket. Demos are limited to 10 minutes. • If you want to buy an additional raffle ticket, they are $10 each and the funds will be used to help pay Meetup costs for the group ($180/year) plus incidental expenses. This is always a fun meeting, and gives us the chance to look up from our computers and see what else is going on around us. Come prepared to eat, have fun, and win prizes! See you there!

    What we're about

    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).

    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 Adobe Creative Cloud — 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!)
