Description

An intimate look at the legendary British designer behind Apple's most iconic products - including the Apple Watch

With the death of Steve Jobs in 2011, JONY IVE has become the most important person at Apple. Some would argue he always was.

Steve Jobs discovered Ive in 1997, when he found the scruffy British designer toiling away in a studio surrounded by hundreds of sketches and prototypes. Jobs instantly realised he had found a talent who could reverse Apple's decline, and become his 'spiritual partner'.

Their collaboration produced iconic products including the iMac, iPod, iPad and iPhone. Designs that overturned entire industries and created the world's most powerful brand.

Little has been known about this shy, softly-spoken designer. Until now. This riveting book tells the story of a creative genius, from his early interest in industrial design to his meteoric rise, as well as the principles and practices that led Ive to become the designer of his generation.

    This book gives a clear outline throughout Jony Ive's design career up till very recent, it covers his life in his childhood up to the introduction of iOS7. However it would be even better if the more recent timelines are covered more in detailed rather than what's already published widely on the internet unlike early chapters with more interviews with key people that work with Jony. Overall well structured, easy to follow and interesting to read for those who would like to know more of Jony's early life.
