SAN FRANCISCO -- January 10, 2013

Rapt Studio, an award-winning, multidisciplinary design practice, announced
the completion of its project for Adobe Systems Inc.’s new campus, located in
Lehi, Utah. Housing up to 1,100 Adobe employees, the four-story, 280,000
square foot state-of-the-art building showcases Rapt Studio’s unique approach
to integrated workspace design becoming an interface between a company's brand
and culture and its staff and customers.

In 2010, Adobe commissioned Rapt Studio to plan its interior design,
capitalizing on the firm’s expertise in defining and designing environments
around evolving cultures. Adobe challenged Rapt to create a workplace that
would be both an extension and reflection of Adobe’s innovative brand and an
engine for capturing its evolving culture.

“This is a benchmark project for us,” said David Galullo, CEO and design
principal of Rapt Studio. “We were brought in as an agent of change to
showcase Adobe’s existing culture and magnify it through workplace design,
drawing upon the company's roots in creativity and innovation to fuel the
space. By aligning the interests of Adobe’s customers, employees and
leadership, we were able to create a space that is the gold standard for
integrated workplaces. Design should solve ongoing challenges, inspire
unparalleled performance and connect people and places in a meaningful way.”

With a client base that includes The North Face, Salesforce.com, SAP and many
more, Rapt’s holistic integrated practice delivers real impact by creating and
connecting brands and environments to the people who use them. Rapt sought to
match Adobe’s unique approach of integrating the art and science of creating
digital experiences by designing an open, collaborative environment for the
company’s employees, bringing brand expression outward in a public-facing way.

“Rapt’s design captures the magic of Adobe,” said Bradley Rencher, senior vice
president and general manager, Digital Marketing Business, Adobe. “By making
our innovative spirit manifest throughout the entire building, they delivered
on the promise to connect Adobe’s brand to our employees, which in turn
extends to our customers. This amazing building will not only help us attract
top talent, but inspire that talent to excel here.”

Rapt filled the space with graphic reminders of the wonder that Adobe brings
to the world, from images created by global artists using Adobe software to
murals by street artist El Mac and graffiti artist Mike Giant in their
signature styles. Adobe’s facility also features an employee café, an indoor
basketball court, a rock-climbing wall, a game room named “The Bunker” and a
fully equipped gym.
