PDF Like A Boss
Adobe invented the original PDF, aka the Portable Document Format. To most of the working world, the PDF is a boring, utilitarian, finite and inflexible thing. It has to be printed, signed, scanned or faxed separately, then sent to a bunch of people with many different opinions on separate email threads. Basically, they’re a huge pain in the ass. Our task was to make PDF’s cool again, or at least change perception about what the modern PDF can be. With the new Adobe Acrobat Document Cloud, the PDF is now an editable, commentable, sharable and electronically signable living, breathing document. Less of a pain and more of an amazing tool for bad-ass office workers to earn their blackbelt in office judo so they can tackle any task, anywhere on any device with confidence. That's how you PDF Like a Boss.
We created a suite of evergreen assets for Adobe to use globally across their digital and social channels in multiple languages.
