hmmm yeah both logos generally look alike.
Autodesk logo = 3D with lighting/shading
Adobe logo = just LT
What's the name of the font that Autodesk is now using?
Consider - both would have been designed by graphic artists, educated/trained at approximately the same time, in the same culture, with the same popular references. In their jobs its important to stay current with trends, the way AutoCAD workers try to stay current with technology. Under those circumstances its not unusual to have similar end results the same way many advertisements from the 60's, 80's, or other eras look similar today.
Here's another similar one. Someone posted this in the Discussion Groups Feedback group:
