    Apple’s most recent design hire, Marc Newson, is reportedly only working at the company part time. The information was revealed in a recent interview with Dezeen where Newson spoke about his latest project with Heineken and proceeded to provide a bit more insight into his role at Apple. In her interview with Newson, Amy Frearson asked if he thought he’d have time for projects outside of his new role at Apple to which Newson responded by saying the following:

    Yes absolutely, because my role at Apple doesn't necessitate all of my time and that was for very specific reasons, so absolutely, my company still exists and I remain based in the UK.
    Even though Newson didn’t use the words “part time,” his role at Apple was alluded to in a recent article on Vanity Fair. Furthermore, it wasn’t revealed what exactly Newson is working on and it’s likely that it won’t be revealed for quite some time either. For those of you who didn’t know, Newson has a history of designing watches but he’s also designed products from various backgrounds including concept cars, spacecraft interiors and more recently a new draft beer machine for Heineken. That being said, his efforts are most likely being used for the upcoming Apple Watch.

    We’ll just have to wait and see! In the meantime, those of you interested in reading the interview can do so by hitting the source link below!
