Jony Ive’s Design Legacy at Apple

Apple’s Chief Design Officer, Sir Jony Ive, has stepped down from his role at the tech giant, marking the end of an era of design-thinking, and cutting-edge industrial design.

In his 20+ year career at Apple, he pioneered and lead the design of some of the world’s most influential and transformative products. Working directly alongside the late Steve Jobs, Ive had a slew of huge breakout successes, from the original iMac, to the best selling product of all time, the iPhone.

We were suckers for his smooth product introduction videos, describing the design thinking and industrial processes, in his flawless British accent.

Leaving Apple to pursue his own company, entitled Loveform, Ive will continue to work with Apple on their design projects. Yet it’s impossible to deny that it’s the end of an era for the company that wanted us to Think Different.

The behemoth today is much more interested in selling you iCloud and Apple Music subscriptions, than continue to pioneer new consumer products, with industry leading design and attention to detail.

Below we take a look at several of the groundbreaking products that Jony Ive was responsible for the design of. We’ll be sad to see him leave the company, although his legacy is firmly intact, having pushed our collective tastes towards a more thoughtful, minimal, and well-crafted place. Thank you, Jony!
