Adobe Community Expert Highlight

 

I'm honored to feature "Bill Silbert" as our community superstar for this month. Bill started working in the Design industry even before apps like InDesign, and Illustrator exists. He used to draw illustrations on paper with such a perfection as we draw by using apps like Illustrator today. Bill has been a part of our community for over 9 years. Bill is an expert in multiple Adobe Products like Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop etc. He has contributed to around 5k community posts so far. We are thankful for his contribution to our community. Let's know more about him in his own words:-

" I grew up in Massachusetts but have been living in the New York area since I came to Brooklyn to go to Pratt sometime in the second half of the twentieth century. After school I started my career as a freelance illustrator which I did for several years. Then in 1989 I discovered something called Adobe Illustrator (Illustrator ‘88 to be specific) that was followed in quick succession with Photoshop and something that I think was called Quark. I fell hard for this new world and totally reinvented myself. I eventually became the Studio training manager at a large New York agency where I worked for 26 years before recently retiring. In 2002 my boss asked me to look into a still relatively new program called InDesign. He wanted me to research it and create a curriculum that could be used to convert our whole agency. It actually took six years for that to come to pass and I had to completely rewrite and update that curriculum paper several times. But eventually I was able to use what I had written to train the whole agency. My good friend Jeff Witchel, an Adobe Certified Expert, used my curriculum (for consistency’s sake) to train the Art Directors and I personally trained the Studio.

Almost six years ago Jeff told me about the Program and got me invited to a seminar in New York. It didn’t take long before I realized that this was something I’d actually been working toward for a long time. It’s been an extremely rewarding experience giving something back to the Adobe community. And I’m amazed at how much I’ve learned as I’ve helped others. 

Earlier this year I had a physical injury that prevented me from being on the computer at all for six months. Being back both on the computer and the forum after all of that makes me appreciate the experience of being part of this helping community all the more.

 

Hobbies/interests: I really love using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop to design projects just for myself. Since I spent so many years working day in and day out on the computer in these same programs the line between work and play has been constantly blurred.


Fun Fact: A long time ago I used to actually draw illustrations (on paper!) that actually looked like they were drawn in Adobe Illustrator! This, of course, was before Illustrator existed (Superb🦸). Below is an example of such artwork:-

The Adobe InDesign and Illustrator forums are actually the only online presence that I maintain where you can connect with me.
