Adobe Systems, the company known for creative software, like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator comes to the rescue for a fire survivor. Danielle Brown, a young artist lost her Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium software in a fire. With the help of Adobe she was able to recover her destroyed media and establish a new start in her creative career.
I was so excited to receive my Creative Suite 5 only I didn’t know that in 6 months to come the software would be destroyed in a fire. Prior to having the programs I had to work out of the school lab and often thought how it would be more convenient if I had my own software. When I wasn’t at school, like during breaks, I would miss the creative programs and couldn’t wait to return back to school. Also, as a student pursuing a design major I knew that this software was a necessity, not a want.
Working with the Adobe Creative Suite has made me realize the potential of graphic designers today and all the options that we can explore creatively. Many times I would just create little projects for myself in order to learn the programs. I didn’t have a deadline or pressing demands so I was able to just experiment to see what else was out there. That is where most of my learning came from. Of course there is also tutorials, books, and videos. However, I feel that when you have a problem and have to figure it out for yourself without the aid of someone else, then you learn what steps to take and will remember what you need to do for the next time. Adobe has truly impacted my life by providing me with software to progress towards my career goals.
Adobe understood the extreme nature of Danielle’s circumstances and realized this was an exceptionally different situation. Therefore, stepping outside of their policy they issued her the newest version of the Adobe Creative Suite in an act of kind gesture, asking nothing in return.
