Marc Newson joins Apple’s design team

Marc Newson, characterised as the most influential designer of his generation, is joining Apple as part of senior vice president of design Jonathan Ive’s team.

Newson, who will continue to be based in the United Kingdom, will be an employee of Apple, and will be frequently traveling to the company’s Cupertino, California, headquarters. The industrial designer has had his work archived by MoMA, and has been commissioned by Ford, Nike, and Qantas Airways, among others.

Ive and Newson previously collaborated on U2 singer Bono’s (RED) auction in November, which raised $26.2 million for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa. They curated a collection of items, many of which they made themselves.

“I’m full of admiration and respect for the extraordinary design work that has been produced by Jony and the team at Apple” Newson said.
