Fonts > Adobe
Founded in 1982, Adobe is headquartered in San Jose, California and is one of the largest software companies in the world. It is also famous for its exquisite type library. Providing stunning, elegant, and beautiful typography since 1985, Adobe offers more than 2,200 typefaces. Their collection is comprised of licensed fonts from world-renowned foundries, including Adobe, ITC, Linotype, and Monotype Imaging; innovative firms such as LetterPerfect and MVB Fonts; and talented individual designers, such as Jovica Veljovic and Michael Harvey Their library also includes award-winning Adobe® Originals; one-of-a-kind designs and classic revivals created by expert type designers at Adobe. The Adobe Originals program began in 1989, when Sumner Stone hired Carol Twombly and Robert Slimbach to create a new series of type families for Adobe. At the time, the desktop publishing revolution was in full swing, and designers had a growing need for high-quality digital fonts. The first Adobe Originals arrived that year: Slimbach's Utopia® and Adobe Garamond®. A reinterpretation of the Roman types of Claude Garamond and the italics of Robert Granjon, Adobe Garamond captured the essence of its models while offering all the advantages of contemporary typography. Versatile and beautiful, it would provide a blueprint for the many updated classics Slimbach and Twombly would add to the collection over the coming decade. Of course, Slimbach and Twombly are not the only designers who have created Adobe Originals. The company has also commissioned typefaces from other award-winning designers, including Richard Lipton, Jovica Veljovic, and Michael Harvey. A special Adobe Originals program was even developed to provide Japanese-language fonts. Today, it includes the works of such designers as Masahiko Kozuka and Ryoko Nishizuka. Adobe Originals are designed to become timeless classics and feature a level of craftsmanship that only the world's best type designers can achieve. Typically, they are not intended for short-term fame but for use over a number of decades. As a result, many Adobe Originals have achieved enduring popularity — Myriad®, Minion®, Trajan®, Lithos®, and Adobe Garamond are some notable examples. FontHaus has been offering Adobe to creatives since 1990.
