A night out with Adobe

Set into the arches of the Shoreditch railway line, Adobe put on a little get together to share news about the latest additions to Creative Cloud, and to tell the stories of success from luminary speakers.

We had Tom Watkins, a D&AD black pencil winner; Marylou Faure, top illustrator; and Dan Germain, the brand director of Europe’s largest juice company – Innocent.

Tom Watkins

At 21, this guy has achieved a lot and is a great inspiration for students and graduates. Watkins made his name with his project When I’m a dadwhich awarded him a D&AD black pencil and a great deal of exposure.

Watkins kindly gave us a few wise words he swears by, designers of all ages can learn a nugget or two from this guy.

Marylou Faure

This woman is on fire! Going freelance little over a year ago, this illustrator has really made her mark on the world, with her quirky style and juicy colour palette, this lady is the real deal.

Dan Germain

‘I don’t know what I’m doing’, wise words from a wise man (with wise 60s hair). Germain expressed the importance of having a voice, your own voice, and being true to it. It works for him, it works for Innocent, and everyone that drinks Innocent.

He’s made something as mundane as juice to be the coolest thing to rock this planet. It has even received the seal of approval, in the form of a tapestry, made by one of many loyal ‘fans’. In the words of Germain ‘Does Apple or Nike have a tapestry?’
