Bad News First - the price of Creative Cloud is increasing on May 1, 2018.
But don’t get too upset, this is the first time in over five years that Adobe has raised the base price of Creative Cloud. So moving forward, all licenses purchased or renewed on or after May 1 will be priced based off the new price. For those customers with Price Lock - any licenses that were purchased under a multi-year promotional price lock will be renewed at the promotional pricing until the promotional period comes to an end; and for those VIP customers with a 3-year commit, your price from Adobe will remain the same for new and renewal orders through the duration of your term. When your 3-year commit term ends, new and renewal orders will be based off the new price.
Phew! Now that that’s out of the way, the good news!
What’s not changing is Adobe’s commitment to delivering the tools your team needs to work smarter and deliver exceptional creative work. Adobe recently announced the next generation of Creative Cloud, including five all-new applications, a redesigned Admin Console experience, and a range of new features and services across its flagship products.
Highlights of the recent release include:
- Adobe XD CC for high-impact campaigns and experiences across multiple screens. XD is the first all-in-one tool for UX designers to build web and mobile apps, allowing creative pros to design, prototype, review, share, and receive feedback from stakeholders in the app itself.
- Adobe Dimension CC for 3D design. Dimension helps designers create photorealistic 3D product shots, packaging, and more—no need for a steep learning curve or expensive photo shoots.
- Adobe Spark with premium features for reaching influencers via social platforms. Spark makes it fast and easy to create and deliver brand campaigns on social media with video, graphics, and web pages.
- Creative Cloud and Adobe Experience Manager integrations. These innovations unify creative and marketing workflows to help speed up content delivery.
With all that said – now’s the time to lock yourself into a 3-year commit to take advantage of the current price and current value of Adobe’s Creative Cloud for Teams!
