Steve Jobs Ideas: White Color iMac
Did you know that Steve Jobs was strongly opposed to the idea of white iMac. Finally he was convinced to use white as Apple’s primary color for its products by Jonathan Ive, Apple’s designer. Since that Ive has won many awards for his designs.
In 2010, Bloomberg Business Week listed him among the “World’s Most Influential Designers” and in 2013, the TIME added him to the annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
In 2012 Ive was elevated to Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) for “services to design and enterprise”.
As of 2016, Jonathan Ive is listed as a patent holder on over 750 U.S. design and utility patents and many related patents around the world. Fortune magazine stated in 2010 that Ive’s designs have set the course not just for Apple but for design more broadly.
