Allow me to use Jony’s own words to break the lessons down for you. 


#1– “There’s no learning without trying lots of ideas and failing lots of times.”

#2– “We shouldn’t be afraid to fail; if we are not failing we are not pushing. 80% of the stuff in the studio is not going to work. If something is not good enough, stop doing it.”

#3– “If you are truly innovating, you don’t have a prototype you can refer to.”

#4– “What we make testifies who we are. People can sense care and can sense carelessness. This relates to respect for each other and carelessness is personally offensive.”

#5– “Designing and developing anything of consequence is incredibly challenging.”
