Project Objectives
Adobe MAX 2020 is a conference for creative professionals, students, and enthusiasts to learn from design heroes, pick up new skills, and find inspiration.  Agency of Record George P. Johnson partnered with Freeman to design and produce individually-themed exhibits inside the exhibit halls, along with installations and ceiling art that aligned with Adobe's campaign theme throughout the lobby and pre-function areas.

Campaign Overview
Adobe simply set out to find a cutting edge style/direction/artist to create an inspiring environment for their creative audience. They tasked Rik Oostenbroek with visualizing convergence of abstract & architectural op-art worlds, using a mix of edgy, rectangular, 3D B&W op-art elements that blended nicely with color.
