There are many things ubiquitous to Adobe's design applications through the history of time; things like the pen tool, brushes, palettes, etcetera. The crosshatch background is synonymous with an element we all work with every day... transparency. And then, needing something to wear while represeting Adobe for MAX, a t-shirt was born.
After the Adobe MAX Keynote, I had quite a few people ask where I got the shirt being worn during the desktop segment. This was a custom design created in Illustrator and Photoshop — seemed fitting for the stage!
