Curtis
Alastair Curtis, Nokia’s chief designer, discusses his design inspirations, coming Nokia devices and how Indian teenagers will influence the future of mobility, in an interview published on Forbes.com.

As Nokia’s chief designer, a post the company veteran has held since 2006, he influences the look and feel of the millions of cellphones the Finnish communications giant produces each year.

Curtis describes his role as promoting “the intelligent use of creativity” within Nokia. He says he feels privileged to work in a fast-moving industry–his team just completed a first take on the firm’s 2010 product portfolio–but also stresses the importance of doing something right, as opposed to first.
