The Art Directors Invitational Master Class (ADIM) was born 19 years ago at a pool party hosted by Stanford University executive Della van Heyst for a visiting group of publishers. Albert Chu of Apple arrived at the party with a Macintosh 512K, and gave a demo that inspired a desire for more hands on information. The 3-day Master Class morphed over time from the Stanford Art Directors Invitational Master (SADIM) Class into the Art Directors Invitational Master (ADIM) Class, but the driving force behind it has always been Della van Heyst, The Van Heyst Group, and Adobe creative director, Russell Preston Brown.

The class might be held on the Stanford University campus, in a beach front hotel in California, or in the heart of Manhattan, but the goal has never changed: Bring graphics professionals together to immerse them in new creative techniques using the latest software and hardware. Add props, prizes, and provocative events (often in costume!) and let the creativity flow.
