Apple announced that Chief Design Officer Jony Ive is going to be stepping away from the company later this year to form an independent design company.
I have been a fan and user of Apple devices during the Jony Ive era and it will be interesting to see what happens from this point forward for Apple, and for Jony as well. Steve Jobs’ death was a major shift for the company and this will be seen as the same, but I feel this has been coming for a while.
If you want to read up on some good thoughts, head over to Daring Fireball to read Jony Ive is Leaving Apple and listen to the last episode of The Talk Show: ‘A Bit Too Thin’.
Thanks Jony for the work. I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy the devices you had a hand in.
