With the challenges the world is facing today, the need for creative ideas has never been greater and when students can become creators of digital content, they can amplify their ideas and increase impact.
“We are seeing a new generation of modern designers emerge today with more cross-media expertise than ever,” said Tacy Trowbridge, worldwide manager of education programs, Adobe. ”Supporting them with the tools and services they need within the Creative Cloud is our top priority as is showcasing their creative work through a prestigious platform like ADAA.”
