For the ninth year in a row, Adobe's Executive Vice President Matt Thompson teamed up with KaBOOM! to sponsor a playground build for a local community in need. I had the privilege of designing the event tee shirt, worn by 125 volunteers as they built a playground from the ground up.
I started ideating in Adobe Photoshop Sketch, with the original intent of a chalk-drawing motif, then brought my sketch into Adobe Illustrator CC for the final artwork. After deciding that black was too heavy for this lighthearted event, I settled on my final design.
By the end of the day, Adobe, SAP, and community volunteers built a highly inclusive and accessible playground with over 25 play events, including 3 slides, a cozy cocoon, swings, and climbing walls.
