Make It on Mobile is a hands-on learning and creation experience for artists at the forefront of modern workflows in illustration, photography and design. These artists were given the chance to learn about Adobe's latest advancements in powerful mobile app technology and then collaborate in teams to make an amazing project come to life.
 
The inaugural Make It on Mobile summit took place at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum on April 21-22, 2016. Take a look at all the artwork created at this event in the team Behance project links below.
