If you’ve never attended the ADIM conference hosted by Adobe’s senior creative director, Russell Brown, you owe it to yourself to check it out! Each year, Russell selects an intriguing theme for the event. The 2014 theme was “Japanese By Design.” In addition to experiencing numerous inspiring speakers, each participant designed and built a Japanese lantern using Creative Cloud software, Epson inkjet printers loaded with washi paper, and a remarkable Universal laser-based wood cutter. Today’s image represents one of the panels in my lantern. Thanks to Russell and his amazing team for hosting an unforgettable event complete with sake served in shot glasses made of ice.
