the roots of making, by hand – Apple computer
image above, tweet from HuffPst.
In the beginnings, at Apple 70s, working for Steve, his driving curiosity was always about how to take the hand, into the computer – and mix/improve the outcomes – for something digital, yet hand-wrought – much of the early G|Appleworks rotated around the notion of cursor, hand, screen, mouse – how to mix them, to magic.
Reminded me of this revelation, day before yesterday – speaking of hand-wrought, and now color-washed. This idea – the watercolored wash – logo is said to be about 30 years old, the 80s – to my recollection, color washed design treatments popped even more recently – like 5 years back…
next up, a script logo for Apple?
Been there, done that.
trend back, time – trend forward: future.
Our sense of trend, technology? That the touch of the hand means something, to human connection.
The real cue is the bridge between the hand – the unexpected push between, the old craft, the newly visualized:
the pulse of flowed watercolour pigment molecules and pixels. Touch, me. Please.
Yes, I will, touch you.
