I didn’t realise how much it would affect me until it finally happened and I realised just how much this man meant to me. Steve Jobs has been a major part of my life since about the time when this photograph was taken.
“In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.”
His vision underpins everything that I do, and that of just about everybody I know.
RIP Steve Jobs. 1955–2011. You will be missed.
