Espresso Shots: Adobe CS5 Workshop

Last Saturday, AIGA Miami and Adobe presented an Adobe CS5 Workshop at the Miami Art Museum. I learned how to create interactive content without writing code using InDesign CS5. Yes you heard right, NO CODING… Every designers dream. I was in design-nerd-heaven. Best of all, the workshop was free for AIGA members. They also gave us some freebie posters and a trial of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 Web Premium which was absolutely awesome. Thanks AIGA, I love you. -Arlene

This is the poster I chose by Like Minded Studio. It was love at first site.

Black and white + beautiful typography + positive message

{ Do What You Like } = Super awesome. I’m all about it.


Typographic: Ellen Lupton

This Thursday February 3rd, Ellen Lupton will be having a lecture and book signing at the FAU Downtown Campus presented by AIGA Miami. The event is open to all. I will most certainly be there. Ellen Lupton is my kind of girl and I want to hear what she has to say. Aside from being a designer she is also a writer, curator, and critic. A woman of many talents. Check out the AIGA Miami site for more information on the event. -Arlene
