Brain Yap is Creative Director at Adobe and an Illustrator/Designer that works heavily with poster-style vector artwork and has fully absorbed drawing on the iPad with Adobe Draw into his process. His work is inspired by a mish-mash of influences including old punk flyers, skate decks, classic pen and ink illustration, band posters and comics, and through his career has created visuals for every imaginable printing process you can think of. His style has become defined by a love screen printing and has worked on projects for Adobe, Apple, Brown Forman, big name music groups like the Black Keys, Alabama Shakes and even Chuck Berry, along with many, many, many bands you’ve probably never heard of.

You’re Not the Boss of Me: My Slightly Ironic Creative Journey

Join Brian Yap as he takes us on a slightly unconventional journey as a creative, ultimately landing him to his current role as a designer/Illustrator for Adobe. In today’s technology-driven graphics industry, Brian’s path follows along with all the fun (and pain!) that we have all experienced as our tools and industries have evolved and changed. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey as Brian shares a few of the places he has worked along the way, and how those experiences have shaped the techniques and processes he uses today.
