Adobe's annual Max conference is a chance for the company to show off the new products, updates and improvements it's made to its software, but in addition it's also an event that attracts thousands of professionals in the creative industry who're looking to be inspired by the many sessions and talks hosted by big-name artists, designers, illustrators and more.

We spent much of our time at Adobe Max in such sessions, and have collected some of our favourite quotes from speakers including legendary film director Baz Luhrmann, the creator of the Happy Mac and loads more familair icons Susan Kare, Humans of New York photographer Brandon Stanton and illustrators and designers including Jessica Hische, Louise Fili, Becky Simpson and Miara Kalman, which we'll share with you here.

"I photograph every sofa I see. I have hundreds and hundreds of photos of discarded sofas. To be allowed to be broken is really wonderful," Maira Kalman.
