If you got your hands on Google’s new social network Google+ you must have noticed that its different. Different from every other product Google has made so far, that is because it is designed by one of the creators of the original Macintosh. Wired’s Steven Levy is reporting that Andy Hertzfeld, one of the designers from Steve Jobs’ band of pirates, played an essential role in the design of Google+.
With colorful animations, drag-and-drop magic, and whimsical interface touches, Circles looks more like a classic Apple program than the typically bland Google app. That’s no surprise since the key interface designer was legendary software artist Andy Hertzfeld.
