Adobes tribute to a true creative icon, David Bowie


Adobe will be represented by Taz Bhuiyan (Associate Creative Director) and Tina Touli (Creative Director).


Adobe is paying tribute to a true creative icon, David Bowie, by launching a new range of Bowie-inspired digital tools across Creative Cloud, encouraging people to freely explore their identities. The tools, created in partnership with Bowie 75, mark both Bowie’s 75th birthday and, the 50th anniversary of one of his most beloved alter egos – Ziggy Stardust.


The partnership – ‘Adobe x Bowie’ – sees the digitised tools available in Photoshop, Illustrator, Fresco, Substance and Adobe Express. Known for dramatic musical transformations, including his character Ziggy Stardust, Bowie was considered the original ‘chameleon’ of pop, thanks to his ever-changing appearance and sound. This is the latest in an ongoing initiative by Adobe to bring to life historic tools from artists that have changed the world, and place them in the hands of modern creators.


With over 20 years in the design industry, Taz likes wearing as many creative hats as she can. Currently an Associate Creative Director at Adobe, she specialises in all forms of design, from illustration to UX design, photo editing and more.
Chosen as one of Campaign’s 30 Female Creative Leaders, she has also driven successful global campaigns for the BBC, Warner Bros, Apple, Disney and Amazon. She’s generally happiest when she is working with emerging creative talent (and watching Star Wars until she’s dizzy).


Tina Touli is a London based creative director, multidisciplinary graphic communication designer, maker, speaker and educator (teaches at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London). She works in a great variety of design fields, including print and digital design, with different clients, such as Adobe, Dell, HP, LinkedIn, Tate, Converse, Oppo, Kappa, Glo, Dropbox and Movement Festival.


They will speak at the Forward Festival Berlin in September. Next to them, you will be able to hear Creatives like Boogie, Johanna Jaskowska, Live from Earth and many more.
