Adobe Life an Open Book
by Natalie Kessler, Adobe Employment Branding Manager
The inspiring stories of our employees and the amazing culture that we have at Adobe should not be kept a secret. For that very reason, we decided to publish the Adobe Life digital magazine, a complimentary annual publication that captures what life is all about at Adobe throughout the world.
As an Employment Branding team, our goal is to show the world what a cool company Adobe is as an employer and to inspire readers to consider exploring a career with us. In addition, we want our current employees to be able to share in the experiences of their co-workers that they may not directly interact with. Digital Publishing Suite allows us to tell that story through rich videos, photographs and articles. The Adobe Life magazine features more than 35 employees covering career paths, community outreach, and the many benefits that we all love. The interactivity enabled through our Digital Publishing technology truly brings these stories to life in an impactful way.
This Adobe Life magazine was created for anyone who’s interested in understanding our culture, for those who are considering building a career with Adobe, and for all our employees who are proud of where they work.
Why Use Digital Publishing Suite?
Telling our story through the web is a given. We wanted something different and we know that audiences are increasingly using mobile devices to consume content. We decided to use DPS because we’re a rich-media company and we wanted to tell our story using the tools that reflect Adobe, the value of our products and our brand. We chose to publish to the iPad for our initial launch because of its popularity and market reach, and we plan to publish on more devices as we build up our skills in DPS.
This time around, Adobe Life is available on the iTunes store and a web-viewer version is also available for non-iPad users. Next year, we aim to make the magazine available on a wider variety of tablet devices. Enjoy the magazine and let us know what you think.
