Adobe Announces Winner of Adobe Stock Photos’ “Take Creative License” Contest

Designer Meg Richardson has reason to celebrate. She was recently announced as the winner of the Adobe Stock Photos “Take Creative License” contest, a stock imagery mashup competition. Judges narrowed submissions into the top 12 mashups, and from there chose Meg’s “clean” and “beautiful” design as the winner. Contest participants pieced together images from the Adobe Stock Photos library to create an advertisement promoting the royalty-free image service. Compatible with the Adobe arsenal of tools, Adobe Stock Photos houses over one million images from some of the world’s top collections.

Titled “Let your imagination soar,” Meg’s winning design plays upon the theme of unbridled creativity. Her ad appears in this month’s Graphic Design: USA on newsstands now, and online at http://www.adobestockphotosentertowin.com/gallery/mashup.aspx
