Adobe founders Chuck Geschke and John Warnock shared a vision for publishing and graphic arts that would forever change how people create and engage with information. The two men met in the late 1970s while working at the renowned Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). Excited by the potential of their work to reshape computing, Geschke and Warnock eventually realized that the only way to take their ideas from the lab to the burgeoning technology market would be to create their own company.
