I can't find one either. I did find articles indicating that it is a secretive company.

Well lets not break down the importance of websites... if so, then would it be correct to say that Apple doesnt need a website?

Ive's prospective clientele are small in number and high in net worth. Each project will be meticulously planned and if you have to ask the price then you surely can't afford the services.

Apple have millions of customers the world over and their website is part of how they offer their services.

So, totally different.

When was the first announcement that JohnyIve's company would be named LoveFrom? Im only asking about the name, not the site.

That would be the ultimate expression of Jony’s uber-minimalism, now wouldn’t it? :)

As I‘ve often said (whined, to some), Jony‘s obsession of making things thinner, flatter, plainer, simpler, smoother, monochromatic, more symmetric, etc., so much before all you’re left with is…nothing?

So maybe a no-website website made complete sense to him, up until the grand unveiling of his hilariously self-absorbed LoveFrom site which really introduced nothing new that wouldn't apply to most other companies in the world. :)

Some of Ive’s greatest designs

1. Apple Stores with stainless steel and glass walls which caused wifi multi-path signals so bad the staff had to complete customer orders in the back room which had sheet rock walls.
2. Butterfly keyboard
3. Cheese grater Mac Pro
4. Trash can Mac Pro
5. $1000 wheels for cheese grater Mac Pro
6. Plastic translucent iMacs and plastic iBooks that looked like purses.

You forgot:
7. iOS7, whose form-first thrashing of intuitive interface design from Jony’s pent-up egotism still negatively affects my efficiency and joy to use Macs/i-devices to this day (and resulted in the Fisher Price My First Computer look to Mac OS)
8. Mouse that’s unusable while charging
9. Chistmas Tree exhibit/design that’s as warm and inviting as an abandoned department store in December whose roof lets in the rain, wind and snow.

Ah yes, the Miami Vice pastel themed iOS 7. Who could forget?

I've always thought Jony Ive looked like a down and out Jason Statham

I almost forgot, the iPhone 4 antenna disaster.

I’d personally give that a bit of a break since that seemed to be more a functional design mistake and not a mistake that was driven by some minimalist form restriction. It’s not as if other iPhones with successful antenna operation had projecting antennas.

Think the interface took a giant step forward not backward. ;)

Potato vs. potato. When something runs into being a little less intuitive or clear than before, or requires more steps to do what used to take 1 step, all in the sake of a simpler appearance, then to me it's a step backward.

If for some, a newer, cleaner, simpler appearance is a step forward, then good for them. :)

Ferrari I can understand, but Airbnb no clue what would they need Jony’s services for?
