Introduction

Have you ever wanted to have your work experienced by every creative person in the world? The Adobe brand has that reach, and this is your opportunity to help define that brand. The Adobe Design Brand team is a small, focused group that creates logos for every Adobe product, defines the visual brand architecture, crafts in-product illustrations, and executes every facet of the brand in UX. We work in pixels but we also create environmental graphics, books, posters and swag items. We obsess on details and craft. We are highly collaborative and believe in the power of critique and communicating our ideas more broadly outside our group. We partner with marketing, executives, product managers, content strategists, and engineering teams. This is big, broad, challenging, and fun work that is highly visible.

The Brand Design team operates within a larger experience design team, Adobe Design. There are many opportunities for collaborations of all kinds, including side projects, pro bono work, workshops, and more.

We want you to help us build the Adobe brand.

You are a designer with a highly refined aesthetic. You love iteration, sweating the details, and moving a finalized concept into production. You love participating in critiques of your own work and that of your collaborators. You constantly spot bad typography in the world and wish you could fix it. You like to line your books up in chromatic order. You love corporate logos from the 60s. You like creating constraints and working in systems.
