Ever since Adobe unleashed Creative Cloud back in 2013, the company’s annual Adobe MAX event has had us all on pins and needles. This week, the company committed to a “truly mobile to desktop” workflow with new mobile apps that will give you even more design options. Top of the list: two new Creative Cloud enabled iOS apps: Adobe Shape and Adobe Brush.
Adobe Shape. Create vector illustrations out of any mobile photos you take, and then import them into Illustrator via Creative Cloud.
Adobe Brush. Use a photograph (or a portion thereof) to create a custom brush that you can then import into Photoshop or Illustrator.
The company has also smartened up online portfolio hut Behance to help talent recruiters better find designers they want to work with via a feature called “Creative Talent Search.”
“…will use Adobe’s imaging smarts to allow recruiters to not just search based on keywords but on the creatives’ portfolios. What’s smart here is that Behance’s algorithms learn what a recruiter is looking for, they will get smarter over time and highlight similar portfolios.
“For creatives on Behance, this also means that they can market themselves based on their work — and not just on their resumes. Once they find a potential candidate, the algorithm then also helps them find similar creatives. Adobe calls this the ‘Creative Graph.'”
