It's nearly August, and the summer is entering its twilight period. Appropriately, our globetrotting with Adobe is also coming to a close. Armed with everything we learned about seeing the world through the eyes of an artist (and the apps those artists use), we set our sights on New York City, the place we call home. How might we interact with the city differently after having taken these incredible trips and spoken to such talented individuals? What rubbed off? How might a place that normally feels like an overwhelming nuisances—*cough* Times Square *cough*—transform itself if you looked at it with a fresh perspective?
