Steve Jobs is probably one of the best innovators of our time and the news of his death has saddened the world. He may be gone but he has left us such a great legacy. He has revolutionized personal computing into both an art and a science. He has discovered ways to make computing much easier and efficient. His imagination and perseverance have inspired countless lives and his designs have definitely created a bond between peoples.
Graphic designers are no exception to his influence. Many of us own a Mac or iPad, not just because our friends do, but because they are simple to use and dependable. As he once said, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” True to his word, he has led Apple to create gadgets that are both good to look at and pleasurable to use.
Words will never suffice, but along with the rest of the world, we are grateful for everything he accomplished. As a tribute, here are some art pieces inspired by Steve Jobs.
