htc scott croyle

There’s a bit of bad news with a nice silver lining for you HTC fans out there. The company’s head designer — Scott Croyle — has decided to make his exit from the company in a formal capacity. Croyle was the man responsible for the HTC One M7 and HTC One M8, two devices highly regarded for their slick engineering and beautiful industrial designs.

Fortunately for HTC, Croyle won’t stray too far from the nest right away. He’ll be staying on as an advisor, giving HTC guidance for design of a few more upcoming projects we have yet to hear about. We imagine he’ll be teaching his successor the ropes through all of this, though, and will eventually hand the reigns over full blast.

HTC has also reportedly made a couple of more restructuring moves, with word that Sense UX director Drew Bramford taking over all of HTC’s software and services (which is basically Sense, heh). We’re not sure whether this is for better or worse for the future of HTC’s products, but it’s something they had to be absolutely sure of as they attempt to revamp the entirety of their business and get back into the black.
