Adobe has all the tools for a professional graphic design, web design or photo-editing studio to create amazing work. Their products have been the flagship products for each of these fields for decades. As a solo designer, I’ve used them time and time again for creating graphics, editing images, and building websites.

A team member can drop a file into their Adobe Creative Cloud Library. A Creative Cloud Library acts as a container where you store a given collection of assets. That Library can be share with other folks on your team so that the assets are used consistently. Even better, they are linked so that if one person modifies something in the Library (changing a logo from blue to red, for example), it’s automatically updated for everyone else who has access to that library. If team members are working together on a project, they can share those files. This keeps from having to use third-party software or large file transfer sites.
