The Adobe Kickbox takes brainstorming and employee support to the next level. It is essentially a mystery box that is sealed with a fire alarm sticker that reads "pull in case of idea." Once that next big idea does hit an employee and they crack open the Adobe Kickbox, they'll be greeted with "a Bic pen, two sets of Post-it notes, a timer, a Staples mini notebook for "Bad Ideas," a slightly larger spiral notebook, a World Market caramel and sea salt chocolate bar, and a $10 Starbucks gift card," writes Fast Co Design.

The Adobe Kickbox also offers a credit card with $1000 on it to be used for any additional materials. Adobe’s Chief Strategist and Vice President of Creativity Mark Randall says, "When you trust people, they’ll live up to your expectations. They’re the CEO of their idea. They’ll allocate their resources and figure out how to move ahead."
