The Creative Community
Many of us feel that we are experiencing unprecedented times right now and certainly so much of the news coverage highlights how the Coronavirus crisis is bringing out the very best and the very worst of people.
At times like this it’s easy to focus only on the negatives but how refreshing is it when we hear that something positive has come about because of the current situation?
Many people including students must be wondering how they can use this time productively so that when we come out of it we will be ready to move at pace. That’s why it’s great to see that global company Adobe has made their suite of creative tools available to students for free over the next few months. As a company that regularly uses and loves the Adobe creative suite, we think this is a marvellous idea that helps students progress their skills even while at home. A small gesture from a large company like Adobe can have massive impact on so many students who are potentially missing out on vital learning, and may not otherwise have access to their favourite creative tools at home.
Studios from around the world have also been offering their help to students by reviewing and offering feedback on their portfolios too. It is so important to have a current showcase of work in the creative industry, and these next few weeks and months could be the ideal time to explore that creativity while building a portfolio that is ready for action when we come through this.
