What do you think of the CS6 icons & splash screens?
In 6 years of daily blogging, I’ve never gotten deluged more than I did when revealing the CS3 icons. After 500+ comments, I even got turned into icons myself. Suffice it to say, people have strong opinions.
These designs don’t happen by accident–quite the opposite. Adobe XD (Experience Design) manager Shawn Cheris has posted a thorough tour of how CS6 branding evolved & the thinking that went into it. He talks about how they started with color, moved into shapes, and ultimately created thousands of individual graphics across the entire Suite.
