Ken was Creative Director at some of the world’s top Ad Agencies and over the course of three decades shaped campaigns for BMW, IBM, Intel, NeXT and Apple. He worked directly with Steve Jobs for twelve years at both NeXT and Apple, led the creative team behind the Think different campaign that launched Apple’s resurrection, and he started Apple down the i-road by naming the iMac. Ken’s books Insanely Simpleand Think Simple spell out the benefits of avoiding big company thinking and making complexity our enemy.
