On Nov. 11, over 30 students participated in the BYU-Idaho Visual Society’s Adobe MAX Retreat. The event included design tutorials from the 2022 Adobe MAX conference, BYU-Idaho alumni Q&As and networking opportunities for students.
The Adobe MAX Retreat took place off-campus where students gathered to listen to speeches from the prerecorded Adobe MAX conference. Some of the featured topics included typography, branding, how to design animated characters and photoshop techniques.
Adobe MAX 2022 took place from Oct. 18-20 in Los Angeles, California. The three-day event included over 200 sessions and featured hundreds of motivating presenters.
Visual Society officers planned the BYU-I Adobe MAX Retreat. Together, they handpicked the most relevant and exciting topics from the 2022 Adobe Max conference to feature at the retreat.
BYU-I alumni Tyler Clay and Julie Phelps answered students’ questions about their careers in visual media and design.
“Have a hobby that lets you create,” Clay said. “You need to be creating all the time.”
Eric Lybbert, a communication professor and advisor for BYU-I’s Visual Society, oversaw the event. His passion for this event manifested as he helped students construct their Adobe MAX T-shirts.
Emma Vehikite, vice president of the Visual Society, designed the T-shirts for the event and Kayla Diuguid, president of the Visual Society, was the behind-the-scenes event manager.
“It’s been rewarding to see how many people came and actually see everybody downstairs watching it,” Diuguid said.
During the all-day event, students were also given the opportunity to work on visual projects in other areas of the building and socialize.
Breakfast, lunch and snacks were provided for the students during the retreat.
