One of the biggest design news stories this year is about Jony Ive’s departure from Apple. Ive has been at Apple since 1992 and has led the industrial design team since 1996. His first assignment in this capacity was redesigning the iMac, his colourful design helped pave the way for Apple’s re-emergence as a tech powerhouse and a design leader. In 2013 Ive took charge of design as a whole at Apple, this included hardware along with UI/X.
Ive recently announced he will be leaving Apple to start his own design firm called LoveFrom with fellow designer Marc Newsom
and that Apple will be one of their clients.
