Join San Jose State University and Adobe for a Creative Jam on Thursday, April 18 at Adobe’s beautiful San Jose office. It’s a one-of-a-kind event, featuring inspiring speakers, a live design competition, portfolio reviews, and fabulous prizes—only for SJSU students. And best of all, it’s completely free.
Creative Jam is an international event series from Adobe featuring creative thought leader talks, hands-on projects, giveaways, and food. SJSU students compete in a live design competition to create a design prototype based on a theme given to them on the spot and using Adobe XD, a remarkably intuitive tool that makes designing together easy. No previous experience in Adobe XD or other Creative Cloud tools or services necessary!
Each team presents their work to a cheering audience of students and special guests, with judges awarding a year’s subscription to the complete Adobe Creative Cloud suite of tools (a $600 value) to every member of the winning team. And all competitors automatically receive a three-month subscription to Adobe Stock (a $60 value) just for competing.
Competition slots are limited, so make sure you register today—once they’re gone, they’re gone.
But have no fear: If you don’t compete, you can sign up instead for a one-on-one portfolio review with a local design expert. You’ll also be part of a lively audience, cheering on teams, meeting students from across the university, and hearing from inspiring leaders from the community. And you’ll vote on the best project in our Audience Choice award!
3:00 pm Competitors arrive, and take a deep dive into Adobe XD with our quick bootcamp. No prior experience required—just make sure you bring your laptop.
4:00 pm Competitors form cross-disciplinary teams and create something amazing with Adobe XD.
3:00–5:30 pm Portfolio reviews, with 30-minute, one-on-one sessions with design experts from the Bay Area. Students can either sign up for a portfolio review or to compete in the Jam, not both.
6:00 pm Attendees arrive, enjoy refreshments, and learn from inspiring speakers from across the region who’ll discuss their work and impact.
7:00 pm Competing teams present their projects to the audience and a panel of esteemed judges. Audience Choice and Judges’ Choice winners are named. Victory dance optional.
