Work smarter with Smart Objects
Bart Van de Wiele, Adobe
The introduction of Smart Objects in Adobe Photoshop has truly revolutionized how we build Photoshop compositions. But many designers still don’t fully understand the limitless possibilities of this key-feature, once introduced in CS6. And we can already say it does a lot more than applying a filter non-destructively. Join Adobe’s Principal Solutions Consultant Bart Van de Wiele and discover:
• How to nest compositions for creating beautiful mockups.
• The joys of linking Smart Objects across multiple compositions.
• How Smart Objects interact with Filters and layer Adjustments.
• The role of Smart Objects when working with video layers and animations in Photoshop.
• Why Layer comps are cool again.
• The link between Creative Cloud Libraries and advanced blending when working with Smart Objects.

When the real estate agent wants, but the toolbox is not enough (in Norwegian)

Andrea Lysgaard og Ben Christensen, fra Antidiffer

Imagine that you have an incredible number of ideas and thoughts on how you can make buying and selling completely optimal for the housing market. But then it turns out that real estate agents have tools from the 90s, and the technical spaghetti means that you only get a stomach ache. How do you ensure continued customer focus? How do you create business value? And where in the world are you going to start?

We will present how we attack such a project, how we solve it and how we make it easy for those we work with to get their hands on the wheel.
Because that's what it's all about.

How will the company ensure continuous market-adapted development. Where the company itself can defend investments in design and technology. And not least, prioritize what is most important and when it should be launched.

Philip Trautmann, UX designer and font designer from Germany

Look forward to Philips' inspiring lectures on font design and how to use them on both printed and digital surfaces. Philip is both a UX designer and a font designer and will give us an exciting insight into a world full of formal words and functional interaction design.

About Philip:

My passion to storytelling and graphic design brought me to user experience design. I have worked for many years as a freelancer on many different design tasks, have been a guest lecturer at an university, was invited to Adobe Live three times and founded a succesful font foundry. It was always clear to me that I want to create something of my own so for the last years I have been working fully self employed. In that time I still enjoyed the collaboration and teamwork with other designers, companies and of course, my business partner. With "Shaped Fonts" we reached five million downloads on our fonts and won customers like "Netflix", "Ferrero", "Melitta" and many others. With "Shaped Agency" we are constantly pushing ourselves to new extremes when it comes to User experience design and branding.

My love to futuristic technologies and anything that accelerates the human evolution makes me also a big fan of Tesla and Elon Musk.
