Photoshop: As Real As It Gets

Typically, Photoshop design is, in one way or another, a mock-up of visuals that could, or do, exist in the real world. But Jakarta-based agency Bates 141 decided to flip this on its head in a project for client software-asil.com.

In an design-imitates-life-imitates-design twist, the crew literally brought the Photoshop CS4 workspace to life.

We have to appreciate both the strategic freshness and the supreme craftsmanship behind the work — we can’t help wanting to come in and play with the wonderful world of tools and colors.
