producing technology requires intuition and creativity, and how
producing something artistic takes real discipline.”

Apple’s Philosophy
• Empathy

12
The Brand name and the Logo
• Name of the company (Apple Computer) was suggested by Steve Jobs

• The name sounded fun, spirited and not intimidating.

• It later became Apple after removing the ‘computer’ from it’s name.

• The logo linked Apple to the tree of knowledge

13
The mass production of art
• Adopted Bauhaus Aesthetic.

• Jobs believed that there should be no distinction between fine art


and applied industrial design

• Power Mac G4 Cube (released in the early 21st century) was exhibited
in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

expressing itself in successive outer layers.

Evolution of mac designs till now.

18
Contd.
• At NEXT, Steve jobs very own company – he had his heart on a cube
design, only the circuit boards have to be reconstituted to fit in a tight
cube.
• Hartmut Esslinger, a German designer for Apple - directly selected
and hired by Jobs.

19
On the screen
• When Jobs dropped out of his college at Reed, he opted to attend
calligraphy classes, which helped overtaking all the competitors in
the industry.
• Designer fonts on a screen, a game changer.
• Introduction of shapes and rounded corner rectangles.

20
Why don’t you see it is important.
• Jobs inherited his love for pure craftmanship.
• He might not feel unusual over criticising the printed circuit board
inside Macintosh, because he had believed in a saying,
“ Quality is more important then quantity, no matter we sell only 10
pieces of Macintosh, but we’ll sell a device which must be better then
the previous standings.”

21
22
The Packaging.
• Mike Markkula had stressed that they needed to ‘impute’ (to
comprehend and accept that yes, people do judge a book by its
cover).
• Therefore, outer packaging determines the worthiness(quality over
price) of the product.
• Apple engineers and designers believed in Steve Job’s philosophy that
packaging can be expressed as a theatre that creates a story, which
can make or break the perception of the buyer about the product.

23
Reset and start over
• It is not just once when Jobs can ask to redesign everything from
scratch.
• Results pays off in favour of Jobs.
• Pressed the Restart button and started over.

24
Backfire Design VS Engineering
• Conflicts between Designers and Engineers are very common in
companies.
• Designers in apple were given more decisional power because of
following reasons:-
I. Design and looks of the devices plays very important role for Steve Jobs .
II. He believed, end consumer should be satisfied and must buy apple with the
looks of its products, which has been apple’s Unique selling point (USP).
• But sometimes, there were minor hiccups,
for example
I. ipod nano
II. Iphone 4

25
The Stores
• Jobs believed that the store will become the most powerful physical
expression of the brand.
• This forecast never come true, but Apple stores become one of a kind
retail outlets as a matter of fact.
• Apple hired an architectural firm to design all of their Stores, and
Steve Jobs took most of the decisions.
• APPLE created an excitement over the store openings, same way as
they did for their product launches.

26
27
Summing up Steve Jobs.
• Fortune magazine has rated Steve Jobs as the greatest entrepreneur of
his time(despite, some can still argue).

• Steve Jobs was the first to recognise the importance of the technology
space.
• His major contributions were not in the functions of the gadgets he
produced, but functionality and also the form of products he produced.
• He’s more of a quality driven person than just working around the
corner.
