“Adobe’s first retail product, back in 1985, was type”

Christopher Slye, writing for Typekit:

Soon after, the Adobe Originals program was conceived […] to create full-featured, timeless typefaces with a high degree of technical care — combining thoughtful type design with an awareness of how best to engineer those fonts to perform well in any conditions.

Christopher joined Adobe as part of the Type team (the type foundry within Adobe). In this blog post, he goes on to profile Adobe Caslon, Adobe Garamond, Kepler, and Minion.
