> Scott Summit
> Industrial Designer
> Owner/Principal, Summit ID
> Industrial Design is deeply rooted for Scott Summit, founder and 
principal of San Francisco design firm Summit ID. With an entrepreneurial 
arts background stemming from an artist mother and a technology pioneer 
father, as well as a professional background in industrial design at 
Apple Computers, Tonic and Raychem, Scott Summit> '> s independent design 
consultancy was a natural path.
> Summit ID was founded in 1997, built on an intensely focused design 
process that only an independent designer can provide. Summit ID is 
located in South Park, an epicenter of San Francisco> '> s creative 
environment. Since its inception, Summit ID has built a reputation for 
transforming innovative ideas into unique, often attention-grabbing products. 
The project range includes sporting equipment, medical devices, audio 
products, as well as a wide array of new technology and consumer 
products. To this end, Summit has traveled the world, working with major 
clients and manufacturers throughout Japan, Taiwan, England, Belgium, France 
and Israel.
> After studying at the John Hopkins University, he joined a product 
design > '> skunkworks> '>  at the technology giant, Raychem. There, he 
mastered CAD systems ? then an emerging field, and now a skill essential 
to the modern industrial designer.
> In 1992, with a background in conceptual design, tooling, and 
manufacturing, he joined the design team at Apple Computer. There, he met 
Gavin Ivester, who would soon found Tonic Industrial Design. During their 
first year in business, Summit and Ivester were recognized in ID 
Magazine> '> s Top 40 issue as maverick designers to watch. At Tonic, Scott 
worked on projects ranging from high-production Apple products, to a 
system that would define the language for Silicon Graphics in the creation 
of the Octane Computer System, to extensive development work on what 
would become Palm> '> s groundbreaking Palm V.
