A bit of nostalgia here. During his presentation yesterday at the Computer History Museum event on Former Apple Industrial Designers, Robert Brunner was quite prolific about the current "iconic" Apple designer, at the origin of iMac, iPod and the iPhone. Brunner was the former industrial designer at Apple, from 1987-1996, and is now founding parter of design studio Ammunition. When I die, what's going to be on my tombstone is going to say: the guy who hired Jonathan Ive!".
"Jonathan is a friend... he's an amazing designer... I originally interviewed him at Lunar, when he was right out of school. I asked him to come over, he didn't want to".



"When I first came to Apple, I tried to hire him and he didn't want to. Then he started a company called Tangerine [design studio] that we hired for a project... and it was again a little bit of an underwork, much like I did when I started with the company... so he did the project, came over, saw the sunshine, saw the work, did a little calculation on the pay check and decided to join in 1992 and when I left I recommended him to run the group which was probably the best recommendation I have ever made."
