Fred Simon's Experience

Designer / Sculptor

Apple

Public Company; 10,001+ employees; AAPL; Consumer Electronics industry

2001Present (13 years) Cupertino

My work is on your desk, in your pocket, or in your hand right now.  As a member of the design team I solve complex manufacturing, assembly and aesthetic challenges every day.  I precisely sculpt highly detailed surfaces for images, models, prototypes, and final tooling, adding to the success of Apple's iMacs, iPads, iPods, iPhones and plenty of other great products.

Owner

City Electric

19992001 (2 years) San Francisco

I founded this partnership to support the design community in the Bay Area. We created products for corporations including Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, Logitech, Motorola, Nike, Sun, plus a lot of small local companies you've never heard of.

Owner / Designer

Just Like That inc.

19961999 (3 years) San Francisco

After moving to San Francisco from New York, I started this design business. I worked with many Bay Area consultancies including Astro, Fuse, and IDEO but most of my time was spent working with Apple.  I was there when Steve Jobs returned, and I made the first concept models for the original iMac, iBook, and 3G Tower.  I was part of the core design team that created these great projects.  I'm there in Apple's DNA.

Designer

S&S Diamond co

19921996 (4 years) New York City

I modernized this traditional diamond district fine jewelry firm by developing high-technology manufacturing methods, building a state of the art CAD/CAM facility, and designing many fine production jewelry pieces.

Public Company; 10,001+ employees; CL; Consumer Goods industry

19891992 (3 years) New York City

In my first job after graduate school I designed packaging for liquids, powders, and pastes.  I also learned the inner workings of a major international corporation.  Picture me in a silk suit and tie flying over Manhattan aboard the company helicopter.
