Adobe's XD team reveals how Photoshop got its spots, Illustrator its stripes and more.
Adobe's experience design team has launched Inspire, a new online publication designed to describe and discuss the interface design decisions the team of over a hundred designers, researchers and developers makes.
In his The Value of Experience blog entry, Director of Experience Design for Adobe Systems Josh Ulm wrote:
"Obviously, I hope that the work of my design team is bringing more value to you and your work. And with the launch of Inspire, I hope that this effort too brings more value to the work that you do. I hope that you are able to come here, hear our stories and find inspiration in them. I hope we're able to answer your toughest questions and give you unprecedented insight into the direction of our products. But most of all, I hope you are able to contribute to the conversation. Because I'm confident that that dialog will be the most valuable part of this experiment."
