Apple's prolific industrial designer, Sir Jony Ive, is taking a trip up the corporate ladder — to a position created just for him.
English comedian Stephen Fry, a friend of Ive, revealed the designer's promotion in a newly penned article for The Telegraph. "Until now, Ive’s job title has been Senior Vice President of Design. But I can reveal that he has just been promoted and is now Apple’s Chief Design Officer." (Video via The Oxford Union)
Ive has worked at Apple for more than two decades; in that time, the 48-year-old industrial designer has been instrumental in the creation of many of Apple's devices, including: the iMac, iPhone, iPad and the company's latest product, the Apple Watch. (Video via Apple)
