For this session, we’re going to focus on what is currently one of the most popular uses of graphic design, the infographic. While Infographics are nothing new, they have risen in popularity thanks to blogging and also social media sites.
In this session, Jason Gilliard, who is on the board of the Los Angeles User Experience Meetup, will show to how to create these fancy infographics for your clients using Adobe’s Illustrator and other tools.
We’ll end the evening by having the finals of our annual Photoshop Idol competition, where someone will be crowned the next great designer in Los Angeles and will produce the logo for our next Sidekick event during Adobe’s MAX conference in October. The winner will receive a prize package including an Astute Graphics plugin, a series of book titles from O’Reilly and a year of Adobe Creative Cloud.
