Adobe Hub Coaches

The Adobe Hub Coaches are here to help you with advice and resources to get your ideas from concept to completion. Everyone, from every discipline, is welcome.

About our coaches


Helping you learn and play!

Chat to our coaches online or meet them in person at the Adobe Hub, City campus, Building 10, level 4, 11am to 2pm, Monday to Friday. You can just walk in to the Hub, but we recommend booking a coach to ensure they are available when you need them.

The coaches are also available at the Brunswick campus every Thursday in semester 2 from 11am to 2pm. Book a session at Brunswick.


Workshops at the Hub

Noora Cao

I am a third year Bachelor of Communication Design student. I have a passion for creating motion and graphic design. As I prepare to launch my career in communication design, I am excited to explore new challenges and to push the boundaries of what’s possible with my creative talent. In my free time, I like to apply my illustrations in Aero to play and experiment with different animation effects.

Adobe apps: Illustrator, InDesign, Portfolio, XD, After Effect and Photoshop.

Nick Flanders-Farmer

I’m a graduate of the Master of Animation, Games & Interactivity program here at RMIT. I design games using a variety of Adobe tools and am always looking to push the boundaries of my creative practice. Whether you need an introduction to the basics of Photoshop or Premiere or a deep dive into Substance, I’m always happy to help!

Adobe apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Rush, Express, Substance, After Effects, Animate.

I’m a creative problem solver, building up strange worlds and crafting meaningful connections as a game designer. I aspire to be a jack of all trades and have worked on urban play experiences for Melbourne Design Week, volunteered on an animated short film that world premiered at MQFF22, and in publicity with the RMIT Cinematic Collective. Becoming an Adobe Coach enables me to weave together my biggest passions: design and bringing people’s ideas to life. I’m currently a final year Game Design student, but ironically, I am a horrible gamer. I’m working on that too.

Hi! I am Sophia, your very own Kiwi Communication Designer and Adobe Coach! I have spent the last few years teaching myself the ins-and-outs of the vast Adobe world so I know first-hand how intimidating the Creative Suites can seem, but that’s why I am here. I am very passionate about design (and if you let me, I’ll talk your ear off about it!). When I complete my Bachelors, I would like to further my studies and eventually go into tertiary teaching. I look forward to meeting you and hopefully make the Wide World of the Creative Cloud a little more exciting.

Adobe apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, Rush, XD, Express.

Regardless of your expertise, I look forward to finding you easy access to Adobe programs so you can unleash your creativity to the fullest.

I'm a final year student in the Master of Communication Design at RMIT. I have my own design practice called Quiggi [quig-gee] Design, which specialises in design thinking and strategy. Through my studio, I design thought provoking events, education design, service design and brands. Beyond strategy, I enjoy all manner of aesthetic design, both on and off screen. I can show you how to realise your creative vision, and help you navigate the tools you need to do this. I look forward to seeing your creative ideas come to life!
