The Moment Is Now. And Now. And Now.
Have you heard the phrase transitional moment? It usually refers to a point in time that’s somehow pivotal: “now” is substantially different from “then.”
Such pivot points used to be uncommon; you might count 10 in your lifetime. Now it feels like there are 10 a year. Designer Tina Roth Eisenberg (also known as Swiss Miss) recently said that she’s “never not in a transitional moment.” And I feel the same way — every moment holds the possibility for change.
If you’re familiar with Adobe Inspire, you know why I’ve been thinking about transformation. As of October 2015, we’ve modified the website design and changed our name to Adobe Create to reflect the magazine’s evolving focus.
There are even more changes to our app (also renamed Create). We’ve moved to a new publishing platform and are now available for phones as well as tablets. We’re also increasing our publication frequency. No more waiting two months between issues of the app! Instead, we’ll push out individual articles as they’re ready. (We will also continue to release special issues on the app. Look for the next one on October 6; it will be devoted to the people and technology at the Adobe MAX Creativity Conference.)
To keep up with our content on the app and the website, you can sign up for our email newsletter and allow the app to send you push notifications.
We can fear transition, or we can use it as a pole to vault out of our ruts. I hope that in a small way, the new Create will help you embrace the positive potential for change in your own life.
