Apple design. Unique, sleek and unmistakeable. It is no secret that Steve Jobs has an obsessive commitment to simplicity. When Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, he made great industrial design the company's priority. By virtue of his taste and discipline, Apple has manufactured products that continuously push the boundaries of innovation.

Jobs has said, “The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.”

In light of his recent resignation as CEO of Apple, we take a look back at some of Jobs' team's best work.
