Marc Newson Updates the Fountain Pen

Newson process for approach designs problems is described here:

Newson always carries his sketchbook with him, where he jots down thoughts on whatever design problem he's trying to solve, as well as other ideas for new products or improvements on existing designs. From the sketchbook, Newson moves to the computer. "Only after that [sketching], do I sit down to begin the process of getting my ideas onto the computer with a colleague and special 3D software," he says. "And so the process begins—learning about and choosing the various processes and materials we may use for the design, refining the design bit by bit, meetings with the client, then to prototype."
