Our group consists of interactive designers, freelancers, video editors and motion graphics artists, writers, print and prepress folks, you name it!
Anything ""visual design"" -- which incorporates most all Adobe products -- is part of our focus.
Our group is part of several Adobe communities in Kansas City.
We meet on the first Thursday of each month at Johnson County Community College in the Regnier Center building. Usually on the second floor, we move around from month to month based on college schedules, so check the display monitors on the wall when you arrive to find out our current night's location.
Membership is free to anyone with an interest in Adobe visual design products.
Events - KCDesignCore | Adobe Visual Design Community Optional special event: IxDA & Cerner present Dave Hogue, Ph.D. on Research - May 13
KCDesignCore | Adobe Visual Design Community
*** Please note: the normal meeting night for KCDesignCore happens to be this same evening; we are TEMPORARILY giving our meeting night up for the IxDA group for the month of June, but we will STILL have our Photo Walk two nights later: Thursday, June 6th (separately). This event with Dave Hogue at Cerner is of course optional, but it's important enough that we wanted to "get out of the way" in KCDesignCore to allow everyone interested to be able to attend. Having our Photo Walk on the same night is unnecessary since it's a separate event. ***

Cerner is hosting IxDA KC's next Meetup event at its Innovations Campus where we'll be treated to an engaging discussion by David Hogue on one of the most critical and yet occasionally undervalued UX principles - interaction research – as well as an unprecedented tour of the new UX lab at Cerner. Anticipated research topics include:
* Researching optimal user interactions,
* Testing the learnability of a design,
* Researching with a limited (or no) budget,
* Measuring the success of a design,
* ...and more!
Cerner is graciously providing us with food (and maybe a few prizes)!
6:30 pm - Social & food
6:45 pm - Welcome by IxDA & Cerner
7:00 pm - Dave's talk
8:00 pm - Lab tours & social time

Events - KCDesignCore | Adobe Visual Design Community KCDesignCore Photo Walk and Creative Cloud Raffle - May 13
KCDesignCore | Adobe Visual Design Community
SAVE THE DATE! We're working on three possible locations for our Photo Walk this year, and once we get support from each of them, we'll be putting the list out to you for a vote on where we'd like to go.
Please note: this is NOT the normal meeting night (I know, we keep switching things around). But we have purposely moved it out a couple of evenings (to what used to be our "old" meeting night) in order to accommodate the IxDA special event with Dave Hogue which got scheduled on top of our (new) "normal" meeting night (we've already shaken our fists at the sky, don't worry).
IF THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM FOR YOU (since you must be present to win at the semi-annual raffle, and we've moved everyone to the first Tuesday but are now temporarily changing that during a raffle month), please let us know offline and we will do our best to ensure you are eligible for the raffle.
More details to come...obviously...but we wanted you to get this all straight on your calendar.
We're all visual designers, so photography is a natural part of what we do. And we've started the annual tradition of making our summer/June meeting into a photo walk somewhere in Kansas City. It's a chance to stretch your wings a bit, and try new things with your digital camera.
At the end of the night, we'll collect everyone's work and present it to the non-profit organization who sponsors us, to augment their communication materials.
Stay tuned for a final vote, but for now, get the date onto your calendar.
Grand prize winner at this meeting will be a one-year free subscription to Creative Cloud!
