I'm basically just design and hot takes on Disney Parks.

Adobe Creative Cloud 2019. Thoughts? Experiences? Dreams?

Thoughts on the new features in Creative Cloud 2019? Anything you're really blown away by? Here's some Thursday Hot Takesโ„ข to start:

Photoshop - Kinda funny to see them adopt the scaling methodology that Affinity has been using (images scale proportionally by default). Not sure why that hasn't been a thing for a long time.

Illustrator - People are flipping out over free-form gradients. They're cool, but I haven't encountered much else that seems like a big win.

InDesign - Some of the automation stuff seems like it will actually help. They've added some "machine learning" to better help with auto image placement, and InD can now

As is typical with Adobe launches, it feels like they've added some neat things I won't use and ignored some easy wins.

Thought I'd share a slice of what I've been working on. I'm currently as a museum and we'll sometimes to exhibit extensions to build on smaller exhibits or enhance visiting ones to fill in weak points.

We're about to feature a King Tut exhibit and created a scavenger hunt map for kids to play with. As part of that we created this fictional Young Archaeologist and Explorer Society that kids can be "inducted" into with an embossing stamp if they complete the challenges.

I'll be posting more finished stuff on my Dribble and Instagram if people are interested in seeing more!
