An Important Message About Apple Industrial Design from Jon Ive

Illustration for article titled An Important Message About Apple Industrial Design from Jon Ive

Really Jon, whatever it is that you are having at the "communal design area," send some over:

We have assembled a heavenly design team. By keeping the core team small and investing significantly in tools and process we can work with a level of collaboration that seems particularly rare. Our physical environment reflects and enables that collaborative approach. The large open studio and massive sound system support a number of communal design areas. We have little exclusively personal space. In fact, the memory of how we work will endure beyond the products of our work.

-Jonathan Ive, senior vice president of industrial design at Apple

That reminds me of the speech given to me on one of my first interviews out of college.

Needless to say, I put a steel bucket over my head and ran.

They had about 50 people working in the building, with no cubicles, shoulder to shoulder, hideous colored walls that were painted such drastically different colors (one was yellow, another green, another red).

The building they rented out was right smack in the middle of the most hipster infested, hard to park, busiest areas of San Diego.

I'm fairly certain it's a brain washed cult.
