A few weeks ago, legendary designer Jony Ive gave a rare public interview that was printed in TIME magazine. He may not quite be a household name, but if you’ve ever used an iPhone, iPod, iPad or iMac, you’ve experienced his iconic product design.
Steve Jobs went so far as to call Jony his “spiritual partner” when creating Apple’s game-changing devices over the last decade or more. The interview offers some great insights into Jony’s ideas, process and feelings on design and is a must-read for anyone in the design or technology industries. Also check out Leander Kahney’s 2013 biography “Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products” which I recently enjoyed, and if you have time, go back even further to design guru Dieter Rams where it all began.
