Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation in Design - frog – The Apple Era (edited)

Almost forty years ago, from 1982 to 1986 frog helped define and shape the industrial design identity of the Apple // and Macintosh line, contributing directly, among others, to groundbreaking products such as the Apple //c IIgs, the Macintosh SE, II and the first LaserWriter.

In the second half of the 80s the studio followed Apple cofounder Steve Jobs in his NeXT venture, coming up with the stylish black cubic NeXT workstation and its related peripherals such as the equally dark monitor and laser printer.

As a bonus you can access extra content by downloading the free frog50 app for iPhones, iPads and iPod touchs (running iOS 9.0 or later). Just run the app and point the camera towards some of the images in the gallery, such as the Apple IIc, to discover nice extra graphical tidbits.
