Sir Jony Ive KBE

Jony Ive is a designer and founder, in 2019, of the San Francisco based creative agency LoveFrom, which includes Apple amongst its first clients.

In his role as Chief Design Officer of Apple, Sir Jony Ive KBE was responsible for all design at Apple, including the look and feel of hardware, user interface, packaging, major architectural projects such as Apple Park and Apple’s retail stores, as well as future projects.

Designer of the iMac, PowerBook, MacBook, iBook, iPod, iPhone, iPad, AppleWatch, AirPods and HomePod, the team he led over more than two decades created products that are widely regarded as having transformed the industry and have helped make technology approachable through the simplicity, beauty and elegance of their design.

He holds over 5000 patents, with his work earning many plaudits, including, amongst others, Honorary Doctorates from the Royal College of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Northumbria University and both Cambridge and Oxford Universities.

In 2013 Sir Jony was made a Knight Commander of the British Empire “for services to design and enterprise".

In 2017, he was appointed Chancellor of London’s Royal College of Art and in 2018 he was awarded the second ever Professor Stephen Hawking Fellowship by the Cambridge Union Society.

Born in London and frequently voted as one of Britain’s most culturally influential figures, Ive studied Industrial Design at Newcastle Upon Tyne Polytechnic, graduating in 1989 and co-founded London-based design consultancy Tangerine. In 1992 he joined Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California, where founder Steve Jobs subsequently referred to him as ‘his creative partner’.
