First of all, I would like to thank everyone who supported my Osore: Sararīman Lightroom Presets. It has been quite overwhelming to be honest, for what started as a simple idea. Well, I am not done yet! Introducing today Osore Runner1982. For those who might have understood the reference already, it's a preset inspired by a 1982 neo-noir science fiction film. Any guesses?
In 2019, our visual landscape will reflect far more than fleeting fads, likes, and shares. We’ll be surrounded by images that capture passionate, beautiful, contentious, messy cultural conversations about values, how we express our individuality and experiences, and how we find refuge in tumultuous times.
Today is a little special for me, I wanted to share my latest side-project/product with you guys on ABDZ. Introducing Osore: Sararīman Adobe Lightroom Presets, launching with four presets fully customizable for Desktop and Mobile. A little backstory? During our escapade in Japan, I became really fascinated with "The Salaryman". In definition, it's an employee (mostly male) wearing a white collar shirt who would earn his "salary" based on individual abilities rather than on seniority.
Our pals from Adobe has shared that the lifestyle and watch brand Fossil's design team revamped their approach with design tool Adobe Dimension CC.

This year I had the opportunity to attend to Adobe MAX. I have always wanted to go and finally, I got the chance. MAX is Adobe's annual get-together where they share news about products, introduce new features for their flagship software like Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and this year I would add XD as part of that. Those four days in LA were quite inspiring and I would love to share some thoughts about the event and the product announcements.
Adobe has recently announced huge news with the introduction to their Open Platform. With the month of September, Adobe XD has released new tools to help you design multiple screen sizes, timed transition elements. With responsive design of being now an industry standard, I am more interested in the new timed transitions. It will allow us to simulate the effects of loading states, looping animations and more.
Adobe has announced big news with Adobe XD where they are opening its platform to enable users to customize their tools through an ecosystem of community and partner-built plugins. Leveraging their APIs, developers can now build on top of XD, adding new features, automating workflows and connecting XD to the tools and services designers use every day.
Our friends from Adobe have just shared their monthly updates and it will includes new features that have just released. This month, we are taking a look at a bunch of updates related to stroke enhancements, label assets and more. What has been really retaining my attention is the integration of Adobe XD into third party workflow integrations for Windows for example. We have been hearing many quotes and possibly facts about how it's a myth that designers can't work on PC and vice-versa.
It must be such an honour to have your work featured on one of Adobe's splash screens also what I called: "Loading Screen" before your tool interface comes to life. It was the case for Luke Choice and the work he has done for Project Felix now called Adobe Dimension CC and also worked with the Adobe Make It Impactful team to engage and educate the design community through a series of tutorials, workshops and competitions.
A few weeks ago Adobe announced the ADOBE HIDDEN TREASURES BAUHAUS DESSAU to promote the release of some of the Bauhaus fonts redesigned for the modern technologies and screens.

So for this post, I'd love to share some of the coolest entries I've seen so far.
