Reuters on Samsung seeking a killer design. Some great quotes from Samsung Mobile’s vice president for design, Lee Minhyouk.
I might not be at (Ive’s) level yet, but I believe Samsung will produce such iconic products one day. It’s not just effort that makes it possible for a new product to be a massive hit. It also has to be timely, and technology should be ready to make a certain design a reality.
I feel a bit sorry for Lee, but the way Samsung will produce iconic products like Apple’s will only be when it stops copying Apple’s iconic products and makes something truly of its own.
