Designer Spotlight: Steve Jobs

What does Steve Jobs have to do with designs in movies? Uhm, more than you think. Ever heard of a little animation studio called Pixar?

Because of his association with Apple, not many people know that Steve jobs was a huge part of Pixar’s history and inception. He even named it Pixar himself.

That is a comic I did back when I had a comic running in The Daily Texan newspaper. Steve Job’s death was a pretty big deal on campus, but I still wanted to put something out there for all the apple haters. Because no one hates Pixar. Period.

Steve Jobs is awe inspiring. My favorite thing about what he did was add the idea of simplicity to something as complex as technology. He often disregarded old ways of doing things and really hammered in the idea of design and simplicity into all of his products and endeavors. A smart man, and I think we can all be thankful for his achievements.

His biography is available on Amazon, go ahead and give it a read. It’s not only interesting but you can learn a lot from him.
