About the figure
Shaped and designed in collaboration with design studio YumYum London, the Hovering Art Director features a speaker with 19 lines of wisdom, produced with Studio Sophisti. The lines were thought up by the creatives at ACHTUNG! mcgarrybowen. The HAD comes in Adobe-branded packaging that tells the story of Adobe Stock and makes it feel like a true collectible that designers will want to have on their desks. He even features all the clichés of a proper art director, including geometric tattoos, limited-edition sneakers, skinny jeans, and a notebook full of award-winning ideas.
About the competition
