Create.

Twenty years ago, Apple asked us to think different. Now BOXX asks you to think again.


Consumer focused

For many years, Apple, in addition to being an exceptional consumer brand, also devoted significant resources and innovation to computer hardware specifically designed for creative professionals in media, entertainment, graphic design, and other industries.

However, as Apple’s consumer market fortunes rose (iPhone, iTunes, iPad, etc.), they made a sound financial decision and turned their primary focus (and ample resources) toward consumers. To their credit, Apple grew company profits into the billions.

But what happened to innovation for creative pros like you?

The situation soon became apparent to creative professionals—Apple was no longer engaged in solutions for them. For film/video editors, the first indication was Final Cut X, which replaced a solid professional editing platform with a sorely lacking consumer application. For other users, the tipping point was 2013, when the Mac Pro workstation tower, for years a mainstay in studios, ad agencies, and design firms, was replaced by the overhyped but underwhelming second gen Mac Pro. To make matters worse, no significant upgrades followed.
