Seattle, yes, but let’s remember that it was at Paul Brainerd’s Aldus Corp. where Aldus PageMaker was created in 1985.

Absolutely. But Adobe's Seattle operations are the former Aldus. Adobe didn't have its own offices in Seattle before acquiring Aldus. And Aldus was acquired to get their next-generation page layout software that was in development, which eventually became... InDesign. Many key Aldus engineers are still at Adobe today.

(At some point the offices were moved from their former location to the current Fremont location, however.)

Cheers,

I know Aldus started out in the Pioneer Square area - drunks, bums, cowboys and wild women - but enough about the original staff ;-) hopefully TypeCon will have a walking type history tour that will visit some of the landmarks in that part of town.

Are they embalmed there?
