Apple chief designer Joni Ive will leave the company and create his own LoveFrom studio. This is reported on the official website of the company.
An entrepreneur came to an American corporation more than 20 years ago – in 1992. CEO Tim Cook said in a letter that Johnny is a special figure in the design world, and his role in reviving Apple cannot be overestimated: the designer worked on the 1998 iMac, iPhone smartphones and many other projects.
After almost 30 years and many projects, I am most proud of the work we have done to put together such a development team. Apple is now brighter, stronger and more talented than ever in its history.
Ive will be engaged in a personal design studio, but will continue to work closely and on a number of projects with Apple. Apple’s new design team will be Evans Hanky, Alan Dye and Jeff Williams. As Ive said, he completely trusts the new leadership and “has been looking forward to working with them for many years.”
