Apple Design Chief Ive Leaving to Form Independent Company

Apple Inc.’s chief designer Jony Ive is leaving after decades at the iPhone maker to form an independent company — with Apple as one of its primary clients.

Ive is responsible for the look of the company’s most iconic products. LoveFrom, his new firm, will continue to work with Apple on projects, he said in an interview with the Financial Times.

Thank Goodness, hopefully now they can move with the times

Makes sense. He can spend 10% of his time designing for apple while earning more than he did as an employee. And he can indulge his pass time of wanting to design cars. I wonder if it means apple have given up on the idea of turning into a car maker.

Jony has been on a back seat for quite a while now. This was a planned move that the company prepared for it well enough. No worries

Yeah let’s give Jeff Williams a real chance to operate in the foreground instead of working from the shadows.
