Adobe has just released Comp CC, a free iPad app that allows users to quickly layout design concepts for mobile, Web and print. With Comp CC, designers can start layout-design projects on iPad, creating concepts that incorporate previously created assets and then send to flagship Adobe desktop tools as an editable file to tweak and refine.
"Doing creative work on a mobile device is only useful if the results can be synced to the desktop, where the project can be perfected in a precise, professional-grade tool like InDesign or Photoshop," commented Scott Belsky, vice-president, products at Adobe. "With Comp CC we've simplified the design process, helping creatives take their initial layout-designs on iPad and make them the basis of high-impact finished work on the desktop - all thanks to Creative Cloud."
Comp CC extends the mobile and desktop workflows enabled by Creative Profile and Creative Cloud Libraries. Creative Cloud Libraries consist of design assets - such as images, colors, text styles, brushes and more - that members have created with Creative Cloud tools. And a member's Creative Profile surfaces their libraries, as they move from app-to-app and desktop-to-device, in the right context - enabling members to effortlessly work across devices and apps. Thanks to their Creative Profile and associated Creative Cloud Libraries, Comp CC lets designers quickly combine the Typekit fonts, relevant images, color swatches and shapes they need to jump-start layout-design projects on iPad and later continue their work in CC desktop tools.
