We just heard the news that Steve Jobs has passed away. Only 56, he was uber successful, somewhat notorious and had an undeniable impact on the history of product and packaging design in America and around the globe.
Dieter Rams summed it up well when he said, I have always observed that good design can normally only emerge if there is a strong relationship between an entrepreneur and the head of design. At Apple this situation exists - between Steve Jobs and Jony Ive...Apple has managed to achieve what I never achieved: using the power of their products to persuade people to queue to buy them. For me, I had to queue to receive food at the end of World War II. That's quite a change.
