GoPro has poached Apple's Daniel Coster and appointed him vice-president of design.

Coster will influence all aspects of design at GoPro in his new role, including hardware and software and services to maximize the GoPro user’s experience from end to end.

A member of Apple's industrial design team for more than 20 years, Coster is credited for his contributions to a wide range of consumer electronics ranging from the iPhone 4 to the iPad wireless keyboard.

“Ironically, Danny and I first met in December, 2001, on the beach in Sayulita, Mexico at the very start of the five month surfing trip where I developed and tested the first GoPro prototype,” said GoPro chief executive and founder Nick Woodman. “His design pedigree speaks for itself, but I will say that we feel fortunate and energized to have him on board at GoPro.”

Coster will take up the role at the end of April and report in to Woodman.
