Who Are the Artists Featured in Adobe CC 2014 Splash Screens?

Meet all 11 artists whose work is front and center in the 13 Creative Cloud 2014 application splash screens.

When Adobe debuted the 2014 Creative Cloud release the company behind the tools used and loved by artists and designers all over the world brought the work of the world’s artists directly into the branding of Adobe’s tools in a new way, in a way that proves Adobe’s commitment to the creatives who use its products.

In versions past Adobe has commissioned art from professional artists and incorporated the resulting work into the box art or totems of the individual products. You can see below those totems overlaid with their matching application mnemonic icons the original cohesive identity of Creative Cloud. These images branded Creative Cloud and CC-version Adobe applications from their debut in the Spring of 2012 until their official retirement in the Summer of 2014.

The 2012 and 2013 branding of Creative Cloud featured box and totem artwork commissioned from artists around the world.

Now, with the launch of the Creative Cloud 2014 release in June 2014, Adobe has once again rebranded its creator-centric tools with uncommissioned artwork by creators. That artwork from real-world artists is incorporated directly inside CC applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and others. Adobe users are now part of the software in the most literal sense to date, with the product splash screens–those colorful identity screens that appear while the program launches–displaying real, pre-existing works from artists’ and designers’ portfolios. In all, thirteen applications display artwork selected by Adobe curators from amongst the millions of pieces on Adobe’s creator community, the Behance Network. Thus the splash screens become a gallery of creatives’ artwork–a gallery in which any Behance Network member might find her or his artwork featured in subsequent months.

Who are the artists featured in the current gallery exhibit within Adobe CC 2014 application splash screens? How can we explore more of these talented individuals’ artwork?

Those are the questions I wanted answered. So I did.

Eleven artists created the thirteen beautiful splash screens currently on display in the Creative Cloud 2014-version Adobe application virtual gallery. I tracked down each of those artists and linked to his or her full Behance portfolio so that we can all be inspired by the full breadth of the artists’ work.
