Microsoft Surface
Senior Interaction and Industrial Design Lead
David's involvement with Surface began years before the project started, with white papers written for Bill Gates outlining the strategy and imperative for a line of Microsoft designed and developed PCs.

David led much of the core design thinking for Surface: from the need for an integrated keyboard to the crisp corner radii to align with the Windows 8 design language.

As the Interaction Design lead on the project, David defined key aspects of the product: the keyboard layout and tactility, the camera angle (horizontal when placed on the kickstand, rather than pointing down at the table), to the hybrid tablet / laptop use model.
