While the first thing you may think of when you hear Steve Jobs‘ name is his legendary work at Apple, many people should know the role he played in the creation of Pixar films. Jobs financed the studio for quite some time, even when it was not profitable, because he believed in the work of the company and it’s employees.
So it is fitting that Steve Jobs‘ name now has a permanent place at the Pixar campus, above the entrance to the studio’s main building. It is also especially fitting because Jobs himself played a major role in designing the building his name is now on.
Earlier this year Pixar also paid homage to Jobs in the end credits of Brave with a brief and touching tribute as well.
