Apple’s design chief Jonathan Ive was knighted today in Buckingham Palace, with Princess Anne performing the honors. Ive’s knighthood was announced in December, but the official ceremony was not held until today.
Here is some of Ive’s philosophy:
“All I’ve ever wanted to do is design and make; it’s what I love doing. It’s great if you can find what you love to do. Finding it is one thing but then to be able to practise that and be preoccupied with that is another,” he says. “I’m very aware of an incredible tradition in the UK of designing and making, and so to be recognised in this way is really wonderful.”
Congratulations to Jony, who has officially been knighted after being selected in December. Huge props to designing the sleek iPhones, iPads, and iPods out there.
