While in mentioning about Apple, everyone of us will think of the amazing products shipped out by Apple such as iPhone and iPad. We are all impressed by its smooth design and handy user experience. But as a outsider do you know the story behind the amazing design of Apple? Apple has a team of world class designers and they are leading the fashion of design. What's the life in Apple's design team?
Ben Williamson from Apple shared one story of him which can give us some hints on what the life is like in Apple's design team. The life there is cool but it also put stringent requirement on the design. Perfect is the only thing they accept. Here is the story.
Perfect matters at Apple. Even if there is one pixel difference and most people may not notice it, but the designers know it and know it is not acceptable. There is a well known saying at Apple called "Apple Way" which in Steve Jobs team means "We don't ship shit, if you're responsible for shit going out the door and I find out, then it means your ass." It's because of this "Apple Way" drive's the growth and innovation of Apple. With this, we can expect more amazing products labelled with Apple in the near future.
Actually other companies or people can learn the course from Apple's design. Good is not enough, perfect should be pursued.
