You may now refer to him as sir Jonathan Ive, chief designer of Apple. Check out the Huffpost Report here.
According to Steve Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson, the late Apple co-founder viewed him as a ‘spiritual partner’ of Apple. That’s saying something.
As someone who was born in the late 80s and slowly became aware of what types of computers were used in the classrooms, the colored iMac desktop made a lasting impression on me as it looked so different from everything before that. It was cute but not childish. It was chic.
I’m not a tech guy, so I’m not about to discuss specifically what made the Ive-contributed Apple designs so great. But that’s perhaps exactly why Apple products are so great: people love them because they are able to do incredibly technologically advanced things without knowing anything about technology. They are simple and intuitive to use.
Ive says in the interview that the product he is most proud off is yet to come. Perhaps he will debut it at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference next month.
