Adobe’s Spectrum creates a common framework for creating consistent, collaborative, and cloud-centric experiences that put the user first.
Adobe’s products have been cornerstones of the digital creative’s workflow for many decades. Powerful tools, like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, have empowered designers and artists to create and innovate in ways only limited by their own imaginations. As the world of digital creativity has changed, so have we. Last year, we revealed Spectrum, our design system, and now, the time has come to showcase its power. Spectrum is the next stage in our user experience, and its implementation, rooted in Adobe’s traditions, is already revolutionizing how users interact with our apps and services.
Spectrum is more than a set of consistent visual elements to be used by our teams when building Adobe apps and services; it is a new set of experience guidelines. These guidelines will ensure our apps remain powerful creative tools while also becoming more intuitive, more approachable, more cloud-based, and more collaborative. Adobe’s Spectrum effort aims to redefine our apps’ user experiences to help 21st century creatives discover their true potential.
