Classic Movie Monsters By Design

The ADIM Conference is a complete hands on, project based event that will help improve your design workflow and make your Creative Suites projects more efficient. You’ll learn from some of the best designers and instructors in the industry while using your newly acquired knowledge to create real-world projects. You will interact and play with 120 graphic designers, art directors, and photographers from around the world. Be prepared to work hard, play hard, and become a “Monster by Design”.

The focus of the 2008 event is Photoshop, InDesign and Flash. Using newly acquired knowledge and sharpened skills, participants will create their own, highly personalized designs for a classic horror film. Participants will design, print, paint, and construct their final project during the event.

Each day there will be a special guest speaker to inspire attendees with their latest portfolio project and ignite the creative monster in all of us. Final projects will be displayed at the closing dinner and Monster Costume Ball where we’ll compete for best monster costume and best table performance. This experience will fill your brain with knowledge and creativity to be your own Dr. Frankenstein – It’s Alive!
