Fast Company is out with its annual list of the hundred most creative people in business. Jony Ive topped this list in 2009 and Scott Forstall came in second in 2011. This year Samsung's head of design came in second. WTF?!? Yes, the Galaxy brand is very popular. But honestly it has nothing to do with design. I haven't come across anyone who's in love with the glossy plastic with faux brushed metal trim look of the Galaxy products.
It's almost like Fast Company felt they has to have someone from Samsung on the list and because its a "creative" list they chose Samsung's design head. I think it's laughable anyone would think Samsung should be recognized for design.
