“Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.”
In 2000, Jobs said this in a Fortune Magazine interview. Now, eleven years later, as technology becomes more pervasive and design becomes more accessible, it has never been more true. I expect that his legacy will live on in various states of form and function, and we are much better off for it.
