Jony Ive to leave Apple to form own design company
(Reuters) – Apple Inc said on Thursday its Chief Design Officer Jony Ive will leave the iPhone maker later this year to form an independent design company which will count Apple among its primary clients.
“Jony is a singular figure in the design world and his role in Apple’s revival cannot be overstated, from 1998’s groundbreaking iMac to the iPhone and the unprecedented ambition of Apple Park, where recently he has been putting so much of his energy and care,” Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said.
