Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive (born 27 February 1967) is an English industrial, product and architectural designer. Ive was Chief Design Officer (CDO) of Apple Inc. and is now the serving Chancellor of the Royal College of Art. He joined Apple in September 1992, where he remained until his departure in November 2019. Following several years of designing Apple products, he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Industrial Design in the late 1990s after the return of co-founder Steve Jobs to the company, and CDO in 2015. Working closely with Jobs during their tenure together at Apple, Ive played a vital role in the designs of the iMac, Power Mac G4 Cube, iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and parts of the user interface of Apple's mobile operating system iOS, among other products. He also helped design Apple's major architectural projects, such as Apple Park and Apple Stores.
"Jonathan Kim" from the "Medium" website, writes an article on Ive's departure from Apple Inc. titled "4 Reasons Why Jony Ive Leaving Apple Is A Good Thing", on July 9, 2019:
"It’s easy to imagine why someone like Ive might become bored with the idea of working on the twelfth, fourteenth, or eighteenth versions of the iPhone, or incremental iterations of any of Apple’s other well-established products. But there have been a handful of recent examples where Ive’s attempts to innovate and reinvent some of these products have resulted in bad reviews, low sales, and sometimes outright failures. And the way that Apple has atoned and corrected for these missteps in recent years points to a change in philosophy in how they approach design that might not sit well with someone like Ive."
