Adobe has been honored with The Art Directors Club Vision Award for 2001, honoring the company’s outstanding contributions to the visual communications industry.
“The board chose Adobe this year because of the elegance and technological excellence of its products and the company’s deep understanding of the needs of the creative community,” Myrna Davis, executive director of The Art Directors Club, said in a statement. “Adobe’s impact on the field of visual communications is immeasurable.”
The Vision Award, previously know as the Management Award, is intended to honor those who distinguish themselves through the recognition of the relationship of design to performance, thereby contributing to a climate of extraordinary creative excellence in communication, education, and social awareness, she added.
“It is a distinct honor to receive The Art Directors Club Vision Award and we proudly share this honor with our millions of customers who make our products come to life every day,” said Bruce Chizen, Adobe president and CEO.
The Art Directors Club encourages excellence and innovation in communication arts. Activities include the ongoing Annual Awards program, the Art Directors Hall of Fame, exhibitions, publications, symposia, speaker series, workshops, scholarships, and other special events, at its 10,000 square foot gallery and office space in Manhattan.
