About Clement Mok

(San Francisco, Calif., August 16, 2023)––Design Bay Area Co-Founder, and visionary designer Clement Mok has been selected to receive the prestigious 2023 National Design Award for Digital Design. Presented by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the National Design Award honors design innovation and national recognition of impact in design, and enrichment of daily life. The Digital Design award is given to an individual or firm for the innovative design of digital products, environments, systems, experiences and services.

One of the early pioneers of digital design, San Francisco-based Clement Mok is a visionary entrepreneur and designer, whose eclectic career roles span from designer, digital innovator, software publisher and developer, author, design patent holder, to restauranteur and serial start-up entrepreneur. An early innovator in designing in digital media, Mok helped shape what people know of today as experience design, information design, interaction design, interface design and more.

In the early 80s he joined Apple, where he worked directly with Steve Jobs on the Macintosh design team. As creative director at Apple, he made computers friendlier and more accessible by designing all aspects of the Mac experience, including the original packaging design of the original Macintosh launch materials MacPaint and MacWrite, manuals, as well as all Macintosh as well as Apple corporate marketing campaigns. Since then, he founded multiple successful design-related businesses, including Studio Archetype, CMCD and NetObjects.
