The Digital Lounge is nestled into the third floor of Wallis Annenberg Building (ANN). It’s a creative space where we can study with the best views of campus and participate in free Adobe Creative Cloud workshops to master programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. As a pioneer in the digital space, our school has a unique partnership with Adobe that grants all USC Annenberg majors and minors with access to the Creative Suite (It’s epic).
Here are five projects from the Lounge that you have to try (At least once!)
