Mr. Mak's tribute to Apple CEO -- the Apple logo where the "bite" was actually Steve Jobs' silhouette -- launched the 20-year-old Hong Kong-based design student's meteoric rise. After it went viral, Ogilvy China chief creative officer Graham Fink offered him an assignment . The result, a red-and-white arrangement of shapes that showed two hands literally sharing a bottle of Coca-Cola, won a press Grand Prix at Cannes. Mr. Mak doesn't want to be typecast as a minimalist; while he loves simplicity, he says he also has a hint of "visual chaos" within himself.
