Creative Suite Artist Profile Videos


We never cease to be amazed by the stunning work created by artists around the world, using Adobe products to help make their art a reality. For our new Creative Suite 6 imagery, we searched across the globe for artists who value creativity above all else, and tapped into their skills and vision to create a humanized interpretation for each of our products. To give back to these artists who devote themselves to their craft, we captured their stories in our Creative Suite Artist Spotlight video series.

Pencil vs. Camera: The Artwork of Ben Heine


We’re most impressed by those who see the world from a truly unique perspective. There’s something refreshing about an artist who finds beauty in the mundane, or who can extract meaning from ordinary circumstances.

That’s why we love the artwork of Ben Heine. Ben creates photograph manipulations by inserting his own interpretations of the landscapes through pencil drawings. In doing so, he effectively alters the photograph’s depiction of reality by superimposing what he would like to see.

Ben kindly provided us with some of his work, along with descriptions of each piece. Dive into his work below, and check out his terrific interview on BestBookmarks.

Creative Suite Ambassador of the Month: Rob Brown


[slideshow id=1 w=500 h=500]
Creative-Layer_Rob-Brown-298x300The Creative Suite Ambassador Group* continues to provide us with a great opportunity to engage with a number of our Creative Suite enthusiasts. As we did with ambassador, Verneda Lights, we’re pleased to introduce our next Ambassador of the Month – Rob Brown. Below is our exchange with Rob, a professional graphic designer and photographer.


Creative Layer: Graphic design and photography seem like your two primary focus areas. What drew you into the creative field? 

Rob Brown: From a young age, I loved art. In high school, I had to fill an elective and could only fit in one drawing class, so I took a graphic arts course and fell in love. I was drawn to the blending of math and art, and the creative process using ink and machinery. I was lucky to have access to a Heidelberg press and lead type bays. When I was fourteen, the digital realm of graphic design was just starting.
