    @VanHelsing: I was actually going for the Royalty/Kings theme anyways because they wanted the headline "OU Kings." I might have made it a bit too obvious with the clipart in the background,...

    First, you have to really think about your brand. You have a big old draft horse in a very modern space. Right now everything you have is sort of just sitting there being boring. How are you going to...

      Wow. I thought he was getting better. I guess he resigned because he knew he was on the way out.

          Wow, I guess he really was as sick as he looked. He did indeed change the world.

                Such a visionary. Gone too soon.
                This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

                  I'd be hard pressed to name a person who had a greater influence on my life and my career than Steve Jobs. Thank you Steve! You will be sorely missed.

                    Wow, I had thought he was getting better too. 56 is so young.

                    RIP Mr Jobs.

                      I'd be hard pressed to name a person who had a greater peripheral influence on my career than Steve Jobs. (Timing is everything, I suppose -- but after spending every thing I had saved to acquire manual graphic skills that were made almost immediately obsolete when I finished school at the same time as the birth of the Macintosh.)

                      As one of the earliest front-line veterans of the Mac-PC war, I guess I might come across as bitter here if I don't say something nice about the guy's brilliance as a superstar brand-builder.

                      But to tell you the truth, that whole CEO worship stuff -- no matter what tribe they came up from -- just never sank into me as worth paying much attention to. And frankly, the 'holier than thou' smugness of so many of the Apple brand-zealots still creeps me out, in a kind of Orwellian sense.

                      Mind you, so does most of what we call contemporary brand building.

                      Still, the guy did tirelessly champion and trumpet the value of design, and to that we owe him (and Dieter Rams, his inspiration) a lot of gratitude.

                      I can't imagine the stamina and courage you'd need to carry out and do what he did in the condition he must have been in these last years -- all under the endless scrutiny of the media spotlight.

                      Hope he had friends and family nearby in his final hours.

                      Be mighty curious to know if he left any kind of message for this world.

                        Steve Jobs was one of my heroes and they're becoming very few and far between.

                          I've never been a bow-down Apple fan boy. But I do admire the man for his creativity and forethought. Not many like him around any more.

                            Must have been a very fast decline in health, or the press didn't know how bad it really was. World won't be the same...

                              The value of good design is not something that the general public quite grasps on its own. I think Steve Jobs did an amazing job. Visionary is the perfect word.
