History[edit] Apple industrial design was established in April 1977 when Steve Jobs hired Jerry Manock to design the enduring Apple II case. Jobs was notoriously obsessed with design and style, rumored to linger over appliances at Macy's for inspiration and together with Manock set about establishing the design language that would be used by Apple for the next 10 years.[1] In addition to the Apple II, Manock came to manage Apple Design Guild which consisted of a loose band of in-house designers, among them Bill Dresselhaus, responsible for the Lisa.

Designers wishing to give their suite of products a unique but consistent look and feel define a design language for it, which can describe choices for design aspects such as materials, colour schemes, shapes, patterns, textures, or layouts. They then follow the scheme in the design of each object in the suite.[1] Usually, design languages are not rigorously defined; the designer basically makes one thing in a similar manner as another. In other cases, they are followed strictly, so that the products gain a strong thematic quality. For example, although there is a great variety of unusual chess set designs, the pieces within a set are usually thematically consistent. Sometimes, designers encourage others to follow their design languages when decorating or accessorizing.
