Lovely — thank you.

Last time I visited Adobe they were still in Mountain View. You parked in a plain old parking lot, and went into a rather ordinary office building — no bridges that I recall. But Russell Brown and Bryan Lamkin were there then too — as well as Carol Twombly, Robert Slimbach, and the rest of the (then quite large) font crew.

Have to say this, though (I will whisper, not to hurt anyone’s feelings) — it was always more fun to visit Aldus. They were much sillier there, and were in a great old Seattle neighborhood, the Pioneer Square area. But Adobe acquired Aldus so maybe fun has its limits! <g>

Gee, that was fun! Thanks for posting!

Brought back some memories of visits to assorted other, similar places.

Jeff Schewe (a way-back CompuServe user) was in Seattle late last week. He will probably update that site with Seattle photos, so you can see if the offices are still different.

Well, physically they must be — I have never been to the new digs. But Seattle has a potent force field so perhaps Adobe Seattle retains that old Aldusian spirit!<g>
