Adobe Originals Silver Anniversary Poster

As we announced in May, 2014 marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Adobe Originals type design program. Many of our readers have been following the Adobe Originals Silver Anniversary blog series we’ve been running to celebrate the twenty-five years of type design at Adobe.

In addition to this series, we wanted to mark this milestone with a poster. We set out to create something unique that was classic in nature but also innovative.

This was a team collaboration between John Caponi, a creative director for Adobe, Norman Clayton of Classic Letterpress, and a few of us on the Adobe type team.

Tamye Riggs gives a behind-the-scenes look at this poster’s creation in the latest edition of Adobe INSPIRE Magazine. Want to see the poster for yourself? We’ll be raffling off a couple at Adobe MAX this fall — and keep your eyes peeled for other conference appearances beyond that!
