World’s Top Creators Headline Adobe MAX

Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) is gearing up to host the biggest, most groundbreaking Adobe MAX in the event’s 13-year history. MAX, the world’s premier creativity and design conference, will convene the top creatives from around the globe to share, create, connect and play on Nov. 2-4 in San Diego.

“Adobe MAX is unlike any other conference,” said Ann Lewnes, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Adobe. “Bringing together the most brilliant and creative minds in entertainment, fashion and design – more than 10,000 people from 60 countries – MAX is an awe-inspiring experience where we explore how creativity and design are changing our world.”

Event highlights include:

  • Inspirational Keynotes and Speakers. The MAX speakers taking the stage this year are pushing boundaries, inspiring possibilities and redefining the way creatives work.
    • Quentin Tarantino, writer and director. The visionary behind breakthrough films including “Pulp Fiction,” “Django Unchained” and “The Hateful Eight,” Tarantino’s vibrant imagination and richly layered storytelling have established him as one of the most celebrated filmmakers and creatives of his generation.
    • Zac Posen, fashion designer. Couture designer, Brooks Brothers creative director and the mastermind behind Claire Danes’ jaw-dropping, glow-in-the-dark Met Gala gown, Posen marries couture with striking innovation in his vision for modern American glamour. Prepare to be awed when Posen comes on stage and the lights dim.
    • Lynsey Addario, photographer. Named one of the most influential photographers of the past 25 years, photojournalist Addario chronicles humanitarian and human rights issues across the Middle East, South Asia and Africa.
    • Janet Echelman, experiential sculptor. Echelman’s work intersects the boundaries of sculpture, architecture, urban design and planning, material science, structural and aeronautical engineering, and computer science. As an experiential sculptor, she shifts art from an object to look at to a living environment one can get lost in.
  • MAX Sneaks. Jordan Peele, co-creator and co-star of Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele,” will host this year’s Sneaks – one of MAX’s most popular events. Adobe will pull back the curtain on the innovation being developed by Adobe Research, offering attendees a first peek at technologies from Adobe’s labs.

Attendees will also gain fresh perspective from the student Adobe Design Achievement Winners as well as Adobe Creative Residents, who are spending a full year focusing on a passion project.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
