Happy Anniversary, Adobe!

This month we celebrate our 30th anniversary, a major milestone for technology companies.  We are in very rare company of those who have thrived over such a period by both making the billion-dollar-a-year and billion-dollar-a-quarter milestones.

This success over the past 30 years is as a result of a relentless focus on innovation and customers first set by our founders, John Warnock and Chuck Geschke. Our impact on every form of communication has been profound – every magazine, every newspaper and web site, images that you encounter,  video and application on mobile devices – chances are Adobe has played a major role in its creation.

As we continued to evolve our company, we decided that as all businesses moved mobile and online, we needed to expand our offerings beyond creation to management, measurement and monetization.  Through organic innovation and targeted acquisitions, we’ve aligned our strategy around Digital Media – the creation of content, and Digital Marketing – the business of content.  Our goal is to make every digital experience across every device a high-impact experience.

The single biggest reason this vision is possible is our employees around the world.  We are a truly globally diverse company with over 10,000 employees.  Our core values of genuine, innovative, exceptional and involved are what set Adobe apart.

Happy anniversary, Adobe, and here’s to many more great years to come!

What has been your proudest or most favorite moment with Adobe products? 

My favorite moment was our Dutch Adobe User Group celebrating it’s 5th anniversary, becoming the largest Adobe User Group worldwide with 6000+ members, for 500 visitors at our latest event a few weeks ago – a result gained also because of the great collaboration between our community and Adobe. Congrats Adobe!

What has been your proudest or most favorite moment with Adobe products? 

I worked for Adobe Systems as an Art Director, and was part of the team who created the demo assets for Creative Suite 3, Creative Suite 4 and Technical Communication Suite. It was an enormous honor to be involved in the promotion of products I use every day and love beyond words. It also made me acutely aware of the extent Adobe goes to ensure their products are the best they can be. We worked with multiple “builds” and it was exciting to see each new version evolve into the one that was finally released to the public. I simply had no idea how much work was involved in getting a new product version released. In many cases, members of our team were able to to see their recommendations being implemented into the newer “builds”.

I worked for many years as an Adobe trainer, traveling around the U.S. to deliver custom training on various Adobe applications. I am immensely proud of the people I helped to get over their fear of the Pen Tool, above everything else. I taught an Illustrator class in Atlanta, where a woman ran from the room crying because she couldn’t comprehend the Pen Tool. A few weeks after class, I received an email from her with a drawing she created with the Pen Tool. She finally “got it”, and I played a role in that. Another time, I taught an 80 year-old retired nurse to use Illustrator, virtually via Adobe Connect. She had always wanted to learn it and we created an Autumn landscape scene with a scarecrow and pumpkins, me directing her as she did all the work. She cried at the end of our session; I even had to teach her how to attach it in an email so she could send it to her son!

What has been your proudest or most favorite moment with Adobe products? 

My proudest moment with Adobe products has to be when I was offered the opportunity to teach Adobe Creative Suite at my alma matter. It was an opportunity that changed my entire life. I am now on my 13th year as a teacher and couldn’t think of anything else I’d want to do. Nothing is more fulfilling that showing someone a procedure or technique in an Adobe product and seeing their eyes light up. That spark of excitement or creativity will never get old.

If you could describe Adobe in one word, what would it be? Empowering.

What has been your proudest or most favorite moment with Adobe products? That’s pretty tough but I’d have to go with being invited to get involved with DPS at pretty much the beginning of its development. Watching the product evolve over the last two and half years has been fascinating.
