Mark Gurman for Bloomberg News:

Riering-Czekalla had the job of chief design officer at Molekule, mimicking Jony Ive, who had the same title at Apple.

Before that, he was a design lead at IDEO, where Apple has gone for talent in the past.

Given that his last job was making $1,000 aluminum air purifiers as alluring as possible, he could be a perfect fit for Apple.

  1. Looking forward to when they hire a “marijuana dispensary designer” for the next update to their Apple Stores . . . When employees greet you, instead of saying hello, they will say, “High?” and giggle to themselves.
