Adobe is a well known computer software company started by John Warnock and Chuck Geschke in 1982. Adobe’s main specialty is to offer applications for handling images and text, as well as a fine type library.
Released through their Adobe Type Foundry, from the very early days, Adobe has taken typography very seriously by creating the standard Type 1 format, and also the PostScript Type 3 format. Since 1997 Adobe has been working with Microsoft on the OpenType font format. Check out more info on their huge collection of fonts here: Adobe Types
