Founded by John Warnock and Charles Geschke in 1982, Adobe has fueled the publishing revolution of the past two decades, introducing desktop publishing tools in the 1980s and becoming the largest Web publishing software provider in the 1990s. Today, Adobe is at the forefront of the network publishing movement that enables customers to create, manage and deliver compelling, reliable content anywhere, anytime on any device. Adobe customers span every industry and profession, from multinational enterprises to creative professionals in small businesses. Every day, millions of people worldwide turn to Adobe's award-winning software to bring ideas to life on the printed page, the Web, through pictures and on video.

"Adobe has enabled people around the world to communicate in more compelling, secure ways for 20 years," said Bruce Chizen, Adobe president and CEO. "It's this vision that has turned a two-man operation into one of the world's leading software companies. Anyone who reads a newspaper, sees a movie, surfs the Web or downloads a tax form in PDF has witnessed the power of Adobe software. Today's proclamation honors Adobe's pivotal role in helping people communicate better."
