Apple Brings Concept Artist Jan-Michael Cart Aboard as an Intern

You've probably seen at least one of Jan-Michael Cart iOS concept videos in the past, including this fantastic iMessage app concept for the Mac, or his conceptualization of dictation on the iPhone 4S. His YouTube channel is full of bright ideas on how iOS can progress with a variety of new features, and it seems his impressive repertoire of concept videos have landed him a gig at Apple itself. "It's Official. UI/UX design." Cart will begin at Apple as an intern while keeping his friends and family updated on his WordPress blog.

Welcome to the new blog section of my website. Soon I will be embarking to California, where I will be interning at a fruit company for seven months. I will be updating this to chronicle my adventures and misadventures in the Bay Area for my family, friends, and followers online. Stay tuned, I leave in less than a month!

This isn't the first time Apple has acquired talent from the iOS community, hiring the developer of MobileNotifier, Peter Hajas, earlier this year. Congratulations to Cart for a splendid invite at Apple. Hopefully we'll see his ideas permeate in future iOS updates sooner than later!
