Adobe Career Bootcamp is a half-day intensive learning experience around the tactics of launching a creative career. On February 24th, Adobe hosted its second Career Bootcamp at Arizona State University. The audience in the room ranged from engineers, photographers, illustrators, graphic designers, entrepreneurs and more.

Bootcamp is designed to help students network with potential clients and employers, curate their portfolio, present their work like a pro, and turn compliments into job offers. The event is Packed with insights from insiders, experiential workshops, and a networking simulation where students can practice newly-acquired skills. We invited local artists and industry pros to act as mentors and judges throughout the event. Our keynote speaker was Landon Armstrong, a local artist and illustrator with over a decade of experience in the field. (www.landonlarmstrong.com)
