I bet he's designed himself a badass mantlepiece to put these mounting awards on!

Yep, I think Jonathan Ive is the best product designer there is. Hey if u guys wanna see more about him there is a program on tv about the designer of the year on BBC 2 on Wednesday 11th June. Check out the design museum's website for more details on the tv program.

What would u do if u saw him in the street?

I LOVE YOU JONATHAN IVE!!!

You best watch out taliking to über that way, buddy. :D

Just kidding.

Congratulations to Ive. He deserves it. The iMac and iPod are truly triumphs of industrial design.

I heard someone saying he won designer of the year (presumably the D&D awards that Apple have cleaned up at for the past few years.)

Anyone have any information on this???

voicegy: i happen to have like five copies of that issue of Time :) it's great...and teh way the author describes Ive has been stuck in my head..."amiable genius".

I'm so looking forward to his new design for the Power Mac G5 PPC 970 tower and hopefully an update 23" Cinema display!

ant

The design for the tower is probably gonna be great they have had so much time to do it anyway. However it could be just an update like what they did for the g3 to g4.
