Thursday Trivia

Apple iPodOne of the greatest recent design icons is the iPod. As well as being an awesome piece of kit (apart from the battery life….), like many other Apple produts, it oozes star quality. Much of this is of course down to the technical design, but a great deal is also owed to the graphic or visual designers who gave the iPod it's aesthetics, image, packaging and marketing.

I absolutely love the simple, clean and extremely cool visuals used to promote iPod – an extremely radical and skilful contrast to the usually fussy design used in the technical field.

However, ever wondered what would happen if the Microsoft marketeers got hold of the product and wanted to redesign the packaging…

Maybe this is only funny if like me you work in branding, but check out this video:

What if Microsoft redesigned the ipod packaging?
