Join LAdobe on Thursday night, February 27th at 7pm at our new location at IgnitedSpaces at 7080 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. IgnitedSpaces is an exciting new c0-working spce with an amazing view of the Hollywood Hills. Free parking is available a couple of blocks away at side streets between Hollywood and Sunset Blvds. You can also use the lot where CVS and Fresh & Eassy are located at $2.25 per hour. Do not use the garage at 7080 Hollywood Blvd. as it is very costly and you will be charged the day rate.

Social Media for DesignersFor this session, we’re going to show you how to best design for Social Media. With all the various social networks out there, how can you best design for each medium? Designing various graphics for a Facebook page is very different than designing one for Twitter. Which in turn, is different than designing for Google+. And for that matter, should you even care about Google+ at all?

In this session, our own Adam Bell of dataTV just happens to run a number of social media accounts for clients across Southern California. He’s here to show you the best techniques and methods to making sure your posts get mentioned. We’ll focus on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest.

Afterwards, itis’ show and tell time! Many of you may be already familiar with Adobe’s own social network, Behance. It’s basically a LinkedIn for designers to connect, network and show off their portfolios. Have you created an account yet? In this session, we’ll show you how to create your account as well as your own ProSite website to give to potential clients and emploters.

Then we’ll ask you, the audience, to come up and show off your own Behance portfolios! If you’d like to reserve a spot in advance, just email us with your Behance link and we’ll make sure you’re first in line to present.

Well have food courtesy of IPS All-Natural Egg White Chips and drinks courtesy of Hubert’s Lemonade and prizes from Astute Graphics and O’Reilly. We hope to see you for our Social Media night in Hollywood on February 27th!
