Adobe Max 2020 is now over but, as everything in 2020, it has been... singular! From a company like Adobe, for which creativity is at the heart of their business, they have the do it well. I did not know what to expect but this was such a great edition. It is even the problem now, they can not go back to the live version only! These videos are so well done, it is like follow creatives in their daily life, inside their studio. I have watched a lot of the live stream during the 3 days of the event and discovered so many inspiring artists. A lot of the videos are available for streaming, but not all, sadly. Wes Anderson, Oliver Jeffreys, Stefan Seigmaster, Mark Seliger were only available during the stream but there are so many others you still can watch. Here is my selection of 14 sessions you must watch.

A true fan (as defined by Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor of Wired magazine) is someone who has received so much value from you that they’ll happily reciprocate by purchasing anything you make. In order to be a successful creator, you don’t need a million dollars or fans, you just need 1,000 true fans.
