SEATTLE-- Apple's brilliant co-founder changed phones, computers, and the music industry. He changed how we learn, are entertained, and create. But even in a technologically-savvy city like Seattle, there is a wonder whether there will ever be another like Steve Jobs.

Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at his California home Wednesday surrounded by his family. He was 56-years-old.

Jobs' style that was so prevalent in every Apple product he touched was rooted in a college art class.

Reed College, at the that time, offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country, Jobs told the graduating class of Stanford in 2004. I found it fascinating.

Those same seeds of inspiration are cultivated in places like Cornish College.

I enjoy making typefaces, student Ross McCampbell. Typography is the epitome of design, where there are all these rules and regulations, but you use those rules to drive what you communicate.

Students at Cornish now all exclusively use Apple products.

I used to work just in ink and paper, said one student.

Finding a person who will prompt the same level of industry innovation as Jobs will be difficult, but just one unique vision could change the way people do things all over again.
