Tim Cook sent us this message yesterday:

"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email rememberingsteve@apple.com

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much."

Everyone that currently works for DMG also works for, or has worked, for Apple. Gary is an Expert, Ryan is a Creative, Kraemer is a Business Specialist, Franco is a Family Room Specialist, Stew is a Creative, and Tim was a lead Creative. We all use Apple products to create, to work, to learn, and to inspire. Without it, we wouldn't produce the art we do. We are thankful to work for such an innovative company, and are even more thankful for what Steve did for our creative sides. He was a true Creative Genius.

You will be missed, Steve.
