Jony Ive, the designer responsible for iconic products, has left Apple. The famed designer is no longer on Apple’s Leadership page, officially ending his stint at the Cupertino company.
Last June, Ive opened his own design company, LoveFrom, with Apple being one of their clients.
Apart from Steve Jobs, Jony Ive was one of the people responsible for making Apple what it is today. He designed landmark Apple products such as the iPod Mini 2004, the iPhone 2007, the MacBook Air 2008, the iPad 2010, Apple Watch 2015, and the AirPods 2016.
Ive joined Apple in 1992 and was named 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 which placed them on the road to become what they are today.
Jony Ive’s last project was the design of Apple Park, Apple’s new corporate headquarters. The modern office complex was designed with British architect firm Foster + Partners.
