I worked with the team at Adobe to develop an avatar creator especially for the annual Adobe MAX Conference, this year being entirely virtual! I illustrated around 1,500 assets to make the full set which is available as a Creative Cloud library for you to access and create your own avatar portraits.
You can check out the project on the Adobe MAX site here : adobe.ly/Themaxlibrary
I won't share all 1,500 assets here, but as you can see from the selection below we aimed for a variety across all the elements, ensuring the library was fully inclusive and ensuring users could be as creative as they want!
With the library complete I made a set of sample people to share with the Adobe team and see what was possible...
The Adobe team then had some fun themselves and went to town on creating people for the MAX site as you'll see in the video...
Launching on day one of the conference the site looks great, check it out yourself on adobe.ly/Themaxlibrary. I feel that this library really fits in with the conference theme of 'Creativity for All' with Adobe aiming to reach as many people as possible with a free-to-view virtual conference covering a huge number of creative areas and with creative speakers at all levels of their careers.
The Adobe MAX site also includes this handy preview video:
Having completed the library I then switched over to working with the team at Laundry Service, a really great social media agency who have been working closely with Adobe to create content with the 'CoCreate' team of illustrators, designers and writers hired to work on all aspects of the conference. The CoCreate team was 60 strong so I put together a portrait of each creative.

Finally it's been great to see Adobe MAX attendees getting engaged and creating their own avatar portraits...
