Welcome To Cannes. Adobe Video and Print Campaign Honors New Creatives.

Art directors are becoming animators. Print designers are becoming web designers. Illustrators are also photographers, who are editors who also shoot film. These are the New Creatives and Adobe is celebrating their work with a campaign from Goodby Silverstein & Partners, that makes them the face of marketing – literally and figuratively.

Adobe New Creatives Campaign

Welcome To Cannes
Here’s a look at the commercial, behind the scenes and the six print ads which are displayed at the entrance of the Palais, the entry point for over 12,000 Cannes Lion Advertising Festival attendees.

The Video
Adobe Creative Cloud: The New Creatives:

The video features a series of artists with their own work projected across their faces. Creativity reports that those who appear include Joshua Davis, Dylan Roscover, Anita Fontaine, Jeremy Fish and Alejandro Chavetta. Additional artwork was also crowd-sourced from Adobe’s Behance online platform that showcases creatives’ photography, graphic design, illustration and fashion portolios. “Default” by Django Django is the soundtrack.

The film was released as Adobe’s announced that it has surpassed one million subscriptions to its Creative Cloud, which gives creatives access to tools including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver.

The ads will run in the official Cannes welcome booklet, in the Lions Daily News, on distributed posters and fliers, on out-of-home LED screens along the Promenade de la Croisette, through online social content, inside the Palais entrance (marking the first time ads have been allowed in the building) and at the Adobe welcome party (which was held yesterday, Sunday, June 15, at the Cannes Connect Bar).

Adobe’s seminar at Cannes, “The New Creatives Are Here,” explores how technology has changed both the way we think about art, advertising and creativity, and the roles creatives play in the industry. Creative talent are no longer simply art directors and copywriters; rather, they edit, direct, code, create web pages and apps, and do more. Speakers include Scott Belsky, author and founder of Behance; PJ Pereira of Pereira & O’Dell; and Yves Béhar, founder and CEO of fuseproject.
