Kits: weighted coffee mugs, office exercise books

The online portfolio of designer Carl Jeffers, noted by ZDNet's Stephen Chapman, has tipped information on an Apple health campaign for its designers, at least in the UK. The image galleries show a design + health kit that features weighted coffee mugs, Post-It notes that include exercise reminders, mouse-pads with ergonomic reminders to 'sit back' and booklets with health regimen ideas and exercise guides for the office. There is no indication in the packaging as to when the kit was produced.

A quote from some of the materials reads: "We all know that many designers live life in the fast lane, seeking quick solutions and eating fast food, but all is not lost. Apple has decided to create a package encouraging designers to be healthier in their work place. The package addresses bad habits, poor posture, general health, and exercise."

It is not clear if the kits are new or were produced some time ago, but it does show a compassionate side of Apple, working to improve the health of designers that are susceptible to health issues due to prolonged periods at a desk in front of a computer screen.
