Adobe CS5 Icons Unevolved

Dark background version of above on Flickr

With the fantabulous success of the Unevolved Brands project, I thought it would be neat to take a look at various well known brand icons, opposed to brand identities.


The same rule applies, Unevolving each icon down to a number of perfect circles representing both letters, words and logomarks etc. The idea isn't to make it harder or easier to interpret each Unevolved design, rather just to really see how they end up.

It's not really a quiz, but a fun visual study.

I could have 'not' titled these as Adobe CS icons, but I think it would have been close to me patrionising you. The result of the Unevolved process leaves the icons still very much resembling their true versions.

These are the original Adobe CS icons over the last few years

If you feel so inclined to name each coloured icon to the CS application counterpart then feel free.

Don't Be Stupid Typographic Poster

Here we have a new typographic based poster design, free for download, based on one of my favourite quotes. Have been fond of this quote for years, and have used it numerous time in my personal blogs. Every now and again I see someone tweeting it, so I thought time to make it into a nice poster. To immortalize these well meaning words in printed and digital form : "The probability of somebody watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your actions."

Download on Flickr

You can download the A3 JPEG version of this poster direct via Flickr, so you can throw darts at it or wipe you're bottom with it.

Download Adobe CS Vector File

Or you can download the original Adobe Illustrator CS vector file, with text converted to outline. I have saved as the lowest version of Adobe CS, so whatever version of CS you use, this should work.

If you do edit this poster, please just leave my logo in the footer as the original credit, thank you.

Fonts

The poster was set entirely in Prelo Slab Black, a gorgeous Slab-Serif, a new font recently downloaded and purchased from TypeTrust.com
