Windows 8

Devices, Settings, Hardware & Partners

Windows 8 is the most radical transformation of the most widely used product on planet earth, since Windows 95.

David was the hardware design lead within the design team, from guiding the team's understanding of how to interact with software on slates using thumb swipes, to writing the slate design guidance for hardware partners.

David led a six-person design team that re-imagined the Devices (printers, cameras, webcams etc.) experiences. He also led the team to define the Settings user interface.

David also led the design engagement with partners, running collaborative brainstorm sessions with key partners in the US & Asia.

My bike design shares the core 911 attributes: light, fast, simple, durable, timeless. The Porsche iconic design details are all integrated, functional components of the design- not styling add-ons. The frame profile reflects the classic 911 glass silhouette, yet still forms a traditional double-diamond bike frame for strength, stiffness & low stand-over height. The belt drive & 8-speed hub deliver the performance expected of a Porsche-branded bike, without the maintenance issues of chains & derailleurs.
