Several weeks ago I clipped out an article from the Wall Street Journal about industrial designer, Eva Zeisel. I fastened the story to my office door so everyone visiting me could read it. Born in Hungry in 1906, Zeisel is one of the great modernist designers of the 20th century. The article titled, “Designer Eva Zeisel, 104 and Still at It” profiles her life’s journey and her remarkable career—still going strong at 105!

I’ve been exposed to art and design all of my life. When I was a child, my mom often took me to art classes at PSU where she got a degree in Graphic Arts. I can still remember being in illustration and art history classes with her when I was four years old. When she completed her degree, she initially worked as a designer and then later became co-owner of HB Design in Portland. She was the “B” in HB Design.

I got this in response to my blog “Every Great Dream Starts with a Dreamer.” Jenna said she can trace her career path back to dream that began around age 10. I’d love to hear your story, so please send it my way.
I grew up in Cupertino, California. My first job was at Apple. Our first family computer was an Apple IIe—the longest-lived computer in Apple’s history. Apple was a huge influence in my life, and in the lives of my friends and family. It’s hard to think of Apple without thinking of Steve Jobs. I will always be a fan of his. I liked that he motivated people to contribute at a very high level in innovating extraordinary products.
