Adobe's Lehi Campus should have a welcome sign reading, "Welcome to Geek Heaven."
That's not meant to be an insult, instead a huge compliment.
As Adobe's Joanathan Francom said, "Geek is the new cool."
Really, Adobe's building is definitely cool.
The first thing you'll notice are plenty of windows. There are 420,000 square feet of glass in the entire building. There is also a good amount of concrete. 2,000 truck loads to be exact, that is enough to make a 4 foot wide sidewalk from Lehi to Ogden.
The building is large and has a very sure foundation, but what the building holds is really special.
Each room shows off some of the best of Adobe; beautiful design,
impressive technology and cool work places. This office is not just about traditional work.
Brad Rencher, Adobe's Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Marketing, said, "this building is very open and very collaborative. It is all about the whole person."
The whole person is definitely taken care of here.
There's a basketball court, full gym with a great locker room, open spaces with ping pong and pool tables, basketball court outside, soccer field, all you can drink soda, and the stairs are interactive.
The building sends a message from Adobe management to their employees: we appreciate you and need you!
Rencher said, "If employees are healthy they will be innovative."
Innovation means money. If Adobe employees are on the top of their game, the company will continue to win in their market.
For Adobe, this totally awesome building helps make their company remain at the top of their game.
Rencher said, "Creativity in everything we are doing is very critical."
