RECAP: Adobe Resident, Christine Herrin/ Storytelling & Book Making Workshop

In this workshop, graphic designer, letterer and Adobe Creative Resident Christine Herrin guided attendees through her process of working from analog to digital. Each participant used a favorite phrase or bit of inspiration from the WeMake conference the day before as a starting point to create their own unique page in a collaborative book. 

Participants incorporated original handmade elements using brushes, markers, and paint. The fun started when they took their illustrations and transformed them digitally with the Adobe Apps: Adobe Capture and Adobe Draw.  Using iPads, their illustrations were photographed with Adobe Capture, and then transformed into instantly editable vector art in Adobe Draw. Color and other digital details we added with Apple Pens, and the final pieces were bound together in a book for each to take home.

Adobe Shape Battle with Jolby & Friends


The eye of the tiger would be the theme song for this workshop. As usual, Jolby & Friends rock the house with a fun and interactive workshop in collaboration with Adobe for the WeMake 2015 celebration conference.

The workshop was actually a hands-on design competition with attendees teaming up to battle live in order to create original drawings and wow the judges using Adobe's Shape app. 

Attendees were guided through the process of using Adobe Shape, Color, and Brush to create assets on the fly and see how they can be utilized on the desktop. After the workshop, attendees split up into 2 teams to use what they learned in a battle against each other for prizes from Adobe and Jolby & Friends. It was super fun, fight songs were playing, taco's were ate, and beer fueled the creative process. Good times, had by all!
