Reprint of our letter:
We started Ideacodes nine years ago with the shared desire to design unique and engaging experiences for the digital age, and to create a design company that was agile, forward-focused and collaborative. It’s been a pleasure and honor to have worked with so many visionary, talented individuals at startups, tech companies, businesses, design organizations and universities. Together, we’ve created delightful and useful digital experiences for people worldwide and promoted the power and positive effects of the connected age.

But this is only the beginning. We’re as passionate as ever to create the ultimate user experience, and this time it’s for the creative community: one that we’ve been a part of for sixteen years. We’re excited to announce that Adobe has acquired Ideacodes and we’ll be joining as Creative Directors of Creative Cloud. It couldn’t be happening at a better time. Creative Cloud is an ecosystem for creatives worldwide, a subscription-based platform that comes complete with advanced versions of much-loved software, instant access to a plethora of tools and services, file syncing and sharing and the benefits of community through Behance. We look forward to helping lead and shape the creative vision for what’s next and to evolving the design experience of Creative Cloud.

Thank you to all of our clients, colleagues, family and friends for their support, conversations and shared passions all these years. It’s a privilege to be part of the design and tech community and we look forward to continuing the dialogue in this next chapter!

Emily Chang and Max Kiesler
Co-founders, Ideacodes
