Sir Jony Ive is leaving Apple to set up his own design firm, LoveFrom, with Apple as one of its clients. The man has been with the company for nearly 30 years, and was responsible for the iconic looks of the iMac, the iPod, and the iPhone.

Ive was named the head of Apple’s design team in 1996. In 1998, he designed the first iMac, followed by the iPod in 2001. This started the turnaround the company needed and has since put the company on the map.
Here are some of the landmark Apple products he designed:
- iPod Mini 2004
- iPhone 2007
- MacBook Air 2008
- iPad 2010
- Apple Watch 2015
- AirPods 2016
Jony Ive’s latest project was the design of Apple Park, Apple’s new corporate headquarters. The modern office complex was designed with British architect firm Foster + Partners.
Apart from Steve Jobs, Ive was one of the people responsible for making Apple what it is today.
