The man responsible for designing the two best smartphones ever made is stepping down from his position today. Scott Croyle, HTC's lead industrial and user experience designer has announced that he is leaving HTC after 6 years. Croyle says that he is departing from HTC to work on his own projects, but will continue working on HTC designs independently.
"HTC remains at the forefront of smartphone innovation. Scott Croyle will be focusing on special projects and dedicated on next generation developments," said HTC in a statement. Design duties will be handed over to Johna Becker, with Sense UI design passed on to Drew Bamford, one of HTC's leading UI designers.
"Drew Bamford is an experienced and talented leader at HTC with solid track records in leading and building our user experience team," HTC said. "Effective immediately, in addition to his current duties in product development and user experience, Drew will lead HTC Creative Labs and focus on innovative new products and user experience strategies."
