While once there was a time when stock images were the norm for businesses' creative work, the ubiquity of stock imagery has turned them into memes for creatives, and the Adobe Stock Apparel line is designed to cheekily express just that.

Though Adobe Stock is itself a stock photo service, the company is changing the way that creatives incorporate stock imagery into their processes. To emphasize this change, the creative software company's Adobe Stock Apparel collection is a sort of eulogy to some of the most cringingly generic stock images.

The Adobe Stock Apparel line is a series of unisex t-shirts and sweaters printed with goofy stock images. The photos include "smiling seniors using laptop," "mature business man with boxing gloves fighting co-worker," and "man at desk frustrated with technology."
