Graphic Design Terminology: Adobe

Adobe: The brand of the software your designer should be using. Founded in 1982, Adobe is the maker of many professional graphic design programs. Some of Adobe’s most popular design programs are Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and Dreamweaver. Of course there are many other makers of design software, but it’s our opinion and the opinion of most professional designers that Adobe is the very best. Adobe products tend to cost quite a bit of money, but the cost is well worth the investment. Adobe’s file formats are universally supported by printers, vendors and other professional designers.

It’s 3thought’s goal to be a resource, educate and promote professional graphic design.
