His work as an industrial designer has spawned numerous brand- defining designs over the past three decades, including his efforts while the Director of Industrial Design for Apple.
Named one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business,” Robert’s work is included in permanent design collections at MoMA in both New York and San Francisco. He is the co-author of the book “Do You Matter? How Great Design Will Make People Love Your Company.”
I managed to catch up with Robert at his San Francisco studio. I hope you’ll find his insights about the intersection of business and art as fascinating as I did.
