Adobe Design hosted the first edition of Adobe Design Mix — a day celebrating creativity and collaboration — on December 12, 2019.
Hacks & Hobbies
There's so much more that designers do apart from UX design. 4 designers from the Adobe design team in India talked about their hobbies, passion projects, and tinkering.
- Harshit Agrawal showcased his stunning personal experiments with machine learning, artificial intelligence, and generative art.
- Aakanksha Krishali spoke about her active engagement with sports and its importance in shaping women's well-being, strength, and focus.
- Nikhil Tailang showcased how he uses machine learning to discover quirky as well as amazing new recipes for baking bread.
- Manisha Gupta shared her experience of building the Devanagari Type Challenge project, that garnered huge attention across social media and brought together unique typographic creations and processes based on the Devanagari script.
Apart from listening to experiences from various speakers, attendees got the chance to do some hands-on creation at two craft booths. Creating their own artwork to take-away proved to be people's favorite part of the day!
In this 2-hour format, participants were divided into inter-disciplinary groups to work on exciting prompts ranging from air pollution to a mission to Mars.
The Design Lab team invited people to manipulate and interact with art using their bodies and facial movement and expressions.
The team curated and exhibited 10 design projects from the Adobe Design team that showcase different aspects of design, from user validation to designing pay walls. The exhibition showcased the design journey of creatives working on designing digital products at Adobe and their process behind it. The exhibition was open for everyone from the Noida campus for the entire week.
