Adobe Ideas and Creative Cloud Workflow

In this post I’m changing things up a bit… Rather than focusing just on developer-centric topics, I’ve decided to show a little more creative workflow using Adobe Ideas.  Adobe Ideas is an awesome sketching app for the iPad. You can sketch whatever you want, whenever you want. It is all saved as vector content that you can then pull into Adobe Illustrator to integrate into your desktop workflow using Adobe Creative Cloud. Take a look at the video below to see it in action:

Once you save your sketch, it automatically gets synched with your Creative Cloud account. You can then pull the composition directly into Illustrator and use it within other creative suite tools.

Here’s the output of the exact composition shown in that video:

You can export as raster (png, jpg, etc…) or vector (ai, svg, etc…) formats, so it can be a great tool for enabling you to hand-sketch high quality graphical assets for your creative workflow.
