Makerspaces and digital tools

Hello everyone. I am new to this community, so please forgive me for any redundancy.

I teach graphic design and photography at a small university in Texas. I also have been recently appointed as director of a makerspace in our campus—Maker Lab. Although almost all student projects done with CNC router and laser-cutter involve Adobe apps (in particular Illustrator), I am very interested in finding out more best practices with Photoshop and other Adobe products. Would anyone point me to some examples and other uses of such tools within maker education?


  • Photoshop

    Editing and compositing for photos, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more.

  • Illustrator

    Create beautiful vector art and illustrations.

One of our maker spaces has 3D printers and drawing tablets with Photoshop. Other uses are music production and recording using Adobe Audition, Video production using a green screen setup with Premiere and After effects, and creating online social media content and graphics for student blogs using InDesign and Spark.
