The Life and Times of Jonathan Ive

The Daily Mail [yes, seriously] have a great article today all about the life of Jony Ive, one of the greatest and most influential product designers to ever exist, working for the largest technology company in the world as their senior vice-president of industrial design.


He designed almost EVERYTHING they have made that you can think of; from the old Bondi Blue iMac to the iPod 1G, iPad, Aluminium Macbook Pro and iPhone..


As a Graphic Designer, I would love for one shred of his talent to rub off on me. But hey, I'm still young, I have time! Amiright??
This man is a true icon of British design.
