Creative Characters S3 E18: Celebrating community, embracing vulnerability, and fostering self-discovery at Adobe MAX 2023.
Now that the Adobe MAX dust has settled, we bring you our second annual recap of the inspiring event that brought 10,000 from around the world to Los Angeles in late October. Between emotional, soul-baring presentations that went much deeper than design, to the “font connection” game at the Monotype booth, there was a palpable sense of community and connection at MAX this year.

In this episode, you’ll hear from twenty or so voices, including type designers, animators, comic book designers, students, and even a specialty letterpress printer, all of whom were kind enough to share their time and their stories with us on the mic. Thanks for tuning in! Read more about Adobe MAX here.
A special thanks to all of our amazing guests. Check out their work below:
