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.

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, Première Pro, and oth­ers. Adobe users are now part of the soft­ware in the most lit­er­al sense to date, with the prod­uct splash screensthose col­or­ful iden­ti­ty screens that appear while the pro­gram launch­esdis­play­ing 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’ art­worka 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.
