Designers around in the 1970s and 80s, here’s your chance to reminisce over original Apple computers which are on display in a new permanent exhibition - including the first ever Apple product, the Apple I, released around this time 40 years ago in 1976. The chunky box screens, mouse and keyboard seem almost unreal - at least unfathomable to a younger generation - compared with the sleek iMac, Macbook Pro and iPad Pro as we know them today (see what Apple says about the future of Mac Pro).

But Apple, whether you like it or not, has been pivotal in transforming the creative process of design. Most designers can’t imagine a career without some interaction with Apple computers or products. A far cry from from paste-up boards from the 1980s, now laptops and Photoshop dominates, as the upcoming Graphic Means film explores.
