User Groups

Orange County Multimedia Association Monthly Meetings

OCMMA sponsors two official Adobe User Groups. In addition to providing great opportunities for learning and networking, each group also raffles off Adobe software packages twice a year. Each monthly meeting includes food and beverage.

Digital Media Creatives

DMCavatarFocus: Video, web and mobile development, illustration, publishing, interactive design and all things within media arts.

The mission of the Digital Media Creatives group will be to enhance our members’ abilities to excel in the whatever area of media arts their interests and inspiration lie. Also to enhance business and creative opportunities. This official Adobe User Group will look at ways to profit at the crossroads of art and technology. Topics will include software and hardware tools and technologies, creative techniques and even business models.
