Adobe Systems was founded by John Warnock and Charles Geschke in 1982. The founders were part of the Research team at Xerox Corporation which they left to open their new company. Their first product was the ‘PostScript’ software which was a powerful computer language that described to the printer the layout of the electronic page.
This was a breakthrough product in the technology Industry. In 1985 they had collected $1.9 million in sales. With this product laser printing became a reality and this was a must have device for the advertising industry. This language was used extensively by professional publishers, corporations and the U.S. Government.
