2018 The Magic Behind Spark's Magic Layout
Adobe Spark Post's Magic Layout sets you up for success quickly by employing a content-aware layout system to suggest intelligent cropping and layout positions based on the content you choose for your design. It makes educated guesses for you to get you almost all the way to a finished product. For instance, if you choose one tall photo and one wide photo and add a text element, Spark Post will automatically place your content in a layout with one vertical and one wide cell. Even more amazingly, it will position an editable text box where the system detects there's relative empty space and common design rules predict it will be most readable. The magic behind Magic Layout is artificial intelligence, as this post explains.

2018 Roanoke County Adopts Adobe Spark
Roanoke County Public Schools (RCPS) in Virginia gave Spark for Education a try this past school year, and the results were beyond what I could have imagined. Their journey started with teachers from the district coming across Spark and trying it themselves. Within minutes of using Spark, teachers at RCPS were thinking of what this could do for their students and were asking how quickly they could have it in their classroom. And in a matter of weeks they deployed Spark to all of the 15,000+ students and teachers (and in the middle of the school year!). You can read more in Sharif Karmaly's blog post.
