NEWS: Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO


Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, inc. has announced today that he will be resigning his post as Chief Executive Officer of the legendary electronics device designer and manufacturer. Normally such news would not make this blog, however, being that Apple plays an instrumental role in the design industry, both as the industry standard platform and as a source of inspiration for many designers, this could potentially have a long term on the design industry. Where will Apple go from here? More stories to be posted as details unfold.

What are your reactions to this? How strongly do you feel this could impact Apple in the future?

I want to find out if you use an iPad in your creative process and if you do, how do you use it? Sketching? Note-taking? A resource for ideas? Or better yet, do you feel they disrupt the creative process?

QUESTION: Do you still make concept sketches?


Is thumbnailing and concept sketching still a part of your creative process? Throughout my experience both professionally and as a student, I have seen many newer students of the industry draw less and seemingly push the same idea across the computer screen until it becomes more of what they want. I personally value the process of the thumb nailing and conceptualizing on paper for the fact I feel it pushes us to explore more ways we can execute an idea far more efficiently than on the computer. I have met some professors that demand it while I have met many professionals that skip it.
