When Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011, everybody raised a question – how will Apple survive without him? Apple answered all those critics in a remarkable video Jobs’ mission statement towards innovation.
Titled “Designed By Apple – Intention,” the video displays words set against simple design patterns and its definitely worth a watch!
The simple words in the video (at the end of the post) appears to be a message to consumers of the company’s product quality and more of direct answer to media, tech industry and everyone. The company just answered its competitors like Samsung who make more phones and throw in every feature they can think of to innovate them. Apple doesn’t work in that way and won’t rush things to market.
We can see this attitude throughout the whole WWDC 2013 keynote presentation. Particularly, Phil Schiller unveiling the new Mac Pro said – “Can’t innovate any more, my ass!”
It says –
If everyone is busy making everything, how can anyone perfect anything?
We start to confuse convenience with joy, abundance with choice.
Designing something requires focus.
The first thing we ask: What do we want people to feel? Delight. Surprise. Love. Connection.
Then we craft around our intention. It takes time.
There are a thousand no’s for every yes.
We simplify. We perfect.
We start over, until everything we touch enhances every life it touches.
Only then do we sign our work.
– Designed by Apple in California.
