There are very few things that we get in life for free, and one of the most valuable is the opportunity to have good taste. I truly believe and live by that sentence spoken in my own words. I believe that design and a taste for it can be acquired but is best if you are born with it. There are very few people who understand how fundamental it is for something to look good, but the people at Moleskine really understand!
Moleskine is a brand of book that can be used for writing, sketching, watercolor, planning, etc. They have many different lines that suit the users needs. These books have a professional and high quality feel and an obvious perfection when it comes to the overall look of these books. I myself have multiple Moleskine books that I use for sketching, writing, and other various things. They not only look good, but are some of the most functional products of it’s kind on the market.
Very few companies pride themselves in achieving such quality, but the ones that do deserve recognition, and Moleskine is one of the most prominent. It even shows in their offices. Simplicity is not overrated and too many companies and products feel that it is. When you go back to the beauty in minimal efforts you truly achieve a good taste in design.
Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, died on October 5, 2011, losing a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He passed peacefully with his family members surrounding him. He was only 56 years old.
In 1976, Jobs co-founded Apple and marketed the world’s first successful personal computer, the Apple II. He changed the worlds of computing, recorded music, and communication.
The world has truly lost a visionary. No one is quite sure what Apple will do without Jobs. He was a true genius and innovator. He was also a good human being according to his friends and family. He will truly be missed.
