Not sure how this clever package design for Panasonic’s earbuds escaped the Brand66 design radar. I imagine a few folks over at Apple are kicking themselves.
In late 2009, I had the pleasure of sitting down with friend/entreprenuer, Ted Barnett, who was interested in developing a digital watch. I left the meeting excited by the idea and returned a few days later with a Keynote presentation. Mind you, this was six months before Steve Jobs introduced FaceTime, the videotelephony software, at the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference. (The longer you play in the business, the more you see these crazy coincidences.)
Now that the rumor mills are humming with reports of Apple developing a smart watch, I thought it would be interesting to look back at the work.
Eight years ago David Foster Wallace spoke to the Kenyon College graduating class about the value of education. Stunning in its simplicity and truth, it’s now my second favorite commencement speech next to this one by Steve Jobs. Nods to Duarte for posting.
