Politicians gather

Communications Minister Senator Stephen Conroy and NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell joined Adobe president and CEO Shantanu Narayen in officially opening Adobe's new office in Sydney. Located in Darling Tower, the office takes up two floors and features an experience centre, which allows the vendor to demonstrate its products for enterprise customers.

Just another day in the office

The office houses Adobe's 180 Sydney-based staff members, and acts as a base for talent acquisition services for the company across Asia-Pacific.

Adobe was previously located in Chatswood.

Ring that bell

Sales staff ring the bell when they've made a sale. Our heart goes out to any non-sales staff members in the office who are trying to do some quiet work.

Safety first

The office is full of quirky furniture. These chairs are near impossible to sit still on. It begs the question: Are these chairs OH&S compliant?
