Jony Ive, Apple’s legendary designer, is moving on up. Writing for The Telegraph, Stephen Fry writes that the man responsible for both the look and feel of the iPod and the iPhone was recently promoted to a new position — Chief Design Officer. Previously, Ive held the position of Senior VP of Design.
In step with Ive’s promotion, two of Ive’s trusted industrial design lieutenants will also be moving up the corporate ladder. Stepping into the role of head industrial designer will be Richard Howarth. Meanwhile, Alan Dye, whose name you might remember from Wired’s fascinating expose on the Apple Watch, will be the company’s new head of User Interface.
