Adobe MAX is a celebration of creativity, where people can showcase their talent, learn new skills and techniques, inspire or get inspired. 
 
For kicks, every year we give industry heavyweights a simple design objective, then stand back and let them run with it. For 2015 we invited four designers to make the MAX logo their own. We created a temporary studio in a sunken staircase of Adobe’s iconic San Francisco offices and built a freestanding wall with a 3D MAX logo attached to it. It was up to each artist to transform the logo any way they saw fit — paint, build, draw, hack, project, whatever. The artists got the space for as long as it took them to complete their interpretation. 
 
Here’s what they came up with.
 
It all started with a blank slate.
