Adobe Creative Meetup
ONE WEEK ABOUT E-culture by curator Bert Hagendoorn
The first of July, Adobe organized a Creative Meetup at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. I was asked to moderate the launch of the new edition of Creatie magazine and host the Adobe Behance Portfolio Review.
At the event, Adobe presented its new version of Creative Cloud. After that, I moderated a session launching the new Creatie, produced together with Adobe. Editor-in-chief Nils Adriaans had asked me, because I was guest editor-in-chief of the edition on Dutch Digital Design at the beginning of last year. First we had Willem Sijthoff, media entrepreneur and CEO of Adfo Group, on stage. After that I had some questions for Nils Adriaans, ending with an interview with photographer and director Paul D Scott, being guest editor-in-chief of this issue of Creatie. Paul walked us through the process and learnings of making this edition.
At the end of the day I hosted the Adobe Behance Portfolio Review: the Behance portfolio’s of creatives were reviewed by professionals from the industry: Harald Dunnink (Momkai), Sanne Braam (FCB/McCann), Barry Schwarz (Addikt), Vincent Lammers (The Ambassadors), Roy van Dijk (Achtung!), Mark van der Heijden (The Backpacker Intern), Ramin Bahari (JongeHonden) and Nils Adriaans and Paul D Scott (Creatie).
