The Adobe Design Achievement Awards celebrate student and faculty achievement reflecting the powerful convergence of technology and the creative arts. The competition – which showcases individual and group projects created with industry-leading Adobe creative software – honors the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists from the world’s top institutions of higher education.
Adobe sent us the certificate below, somehow not getting around to naming the artists — Jaqi Vigil, Hilal Koyuncu, Rose Maison, Josefina Santos, Umut Ozover, and me; and co-producer with me, Anezka Sebek — or the name of the project: Union Square in Motion.
Anyway, I couldn’t be prouder of the team. Of course we felt we deserved to win it all, but I can’t complain about top eight. I hope my support for free software didn’t hurt us. Other members of the team used tons of Adobe software, but until they release their code with a free license, I barely touch the stuff.
