An Instagram look at the life of ThinkPad designer, Lenovo’s David Hill

David Hill working with Sapper in his Milano Studio.

David Hill is one of the brilliant minds behind the design of products including the Lenovo ThinkPad and some of IBM’s past technology, including the NetVista X41. Currently, Hill maintains his job as Lenovo’s Vice President of corporate identity and design, and now, you can take a look at the behind the scenes work he does on his Instagram profile.

The new Instagram profile, thinkpad_design, was created a few days ago and shows some of the original sketches Hill has drawn out, sources of inspiration, and, of course, TrackPoints everywhere. David Hill also shows us the sense of humor he feels modern design needs, with a “mask” made out of packaging materials.
