Adobe: There Will Be No Creative Suite 7

I knew that the Adobe focus group I participated in was going to use the results to eventually kill off CS - I just had no idea it would be so soon.

I hope that, at the very least, I had a little something to do with Creative Suite’s demise.


Many design firms buy the new Adobe Creative Suite whenever it comes out. After all, the software is a mainstay for anyone who creates on computers. But today, Adobe has announced that there will be no Creative Suite 7. That’s because the Creative Suite is giving way to the Creative Cloud—a subscription-based model in which you pay for access to Adobe’s software monthly. And as it appears, their famous individual products that traditionally make up Creative Suite, like Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign won’t be available for individual purchase, either.
