Adobe COO Thinks John Warnock Was a Type Designer

Adobe COO Shantanu Narayen, asked by Forbes for his favorite font, said:

“There are some Warnock fonts that are absolutely spectacular that we use within the company. John Warnock, as a founder of the company, did some amazing fonts.”

John Warnock, along with his cofounder at Adobe, Chuck Geschke, invented the PostScript language. He is not a typographer. Warnock Pro, the excellent typeface Narayen is apparently referring to, was designed by Robert Slimbach.

I could point to this, but I won’t.
