Apple's Chief Designer Jony Ive Is Leaving After Nearly 30 Years at the Company

But will still continue to work with Apple.

Apple has recently announced that its chief design officer, Jony Ive, will be leaving the company later this year. While starting his own independent design company and working on personal projects, Ive will still continue to collaborate with the California-based tech giant as one of his primary clients.

“Jony is a singular figure in the design world and his role in Apple’s revival cannot be overstated, from 1998’s groundbreaking iMac to the iPhone and the unprecedented ambition of Apple Park, where recently he has been putting so much of his energy and care,” Apple’s CEO Tim Cook stated in an official announcement. “Apple will continue to benefit from Jony’s talents by working directly with him on exclusive projects, and through the ongoing work of the brilliant and passionate design team he has built. After so many years working closely together, I’m happy that our relationship continues to evolve and I look forward to working with Jony long into the future.”

Meanwhile, Ive expressed his gratitude for the company and his team. “After nearly 30 years and countless projects, I am most proud of the lasting work we have done to create a design team, process and culture at Apple that is without peer. Today it is stronger, more vibrant and more talented than at any point in Apple’s history. The team will certainly thrive under the excellent leadership of Evans, Alan and Jeff, who have been among my closest collaborators. I have the utmost confidence in my designer colleagues at Apple, who remain my closest friends, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
