Adobe Creative Cloud members will have a nice surprise waiting for them when they fire up their computers today as Adobe is pushing a big round of updates to both InDesign and Illustrator CC.

For example, let’s say an accounting firm booked fewer clients in July than in June, and needs its CEO to approve a sales plan to reverse the trend in August. How could that plan be communicated to the CEO as a story, telling him how he can achieve his broader goals for the company?
