JOHN SENDS ALONG the following note…and a link to newspaper front pages around the world that paid tribute to Apple’s technology visionary and marketing genius. I encourage you to take a look.
I know you’re a huge fan of Apple products, as many of us in the industry are. Newspapers and design — along with many other creative fields — are synonymous with Apple products: various incarnations of Macintosh, and more recently with iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, iPhones and increasingly with iPads as well.
As it stands, it’s not surprising that the death of Steve Jobs seems to have hit home with so many people in the industry I know. The same expression kept coming up from coworkers and friends: “I never knew that the death of a man I never met could so affect me.”
So, with that in mind, I thought you would enjoy checking this out. The Apple technology blog “Cult of Mac” put together a collection of the front pages of more than 100 newspapers from around the world that prominently feature a design package on the death of Steve Jobs, his life, and his contributions to the world and technology. Some really good design packages in here — and some that are, well … you know.
So here’s to you, Steve Jobs. Our hats off to you, the father of the “Personal Computer” and the “Digital Revolution,” friend to journalists, graphic designers, artists and writers everywhere.

All the best,
