sue fractured prSAN FRANCISCO, CA – Adobe, the global leader in digital marketing and digital media solutions, is featuring New World School of the Arts student Sue Montoya in its global “Make It With Creative Cloud” campaign. Montoya is part of a group of promising students selected by Adobe to feature their talents and shine a light on how they're reaching their goals in their respective fields of expertise and academic pursuits.
 
Montoya is studying photography at the New World School of the Arts. A recent class assignment called Positive/Negative inspired a series of collages about Montoya’s mother. Taking existing photographs of her mother, a native of Honduras, Sue scanned them into Adobe Photoshop and added graphic overlays of minerals and lace to give the pictures a fractured look. The series of photos illustrate the positive and negative surrounding her mother’s immigration to the United States. Her moving works and artistry will be showcased by Adobe throughout May 2014.
 
The goal of Adobe's "Make It With Creative Cloud" campaign is to highlight exceptional students, showcase their work, and create professional opportunities that would not be available to students normally – ultimately providing students with the tools to aid their “making” process, as well as their ability to “make it” professionally. Adobe developed the campaign with digital agency partner MRY (www.mry.com), incorporating social components to support community engagement. As a result, students are encouraged to showcase their work through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the #madethis hash-tag.
