Apple's Former Design Chief Jony Ive to Speak at WIRED Event Next Week

WIRED announced that Jony Ive, Apple's former chief design officer, will meet with Anna Wintour, Vogue's long-standing editor-in-chief, to discuss his recent endeavors and the future of design.

Ive will be speaking with Wintour on Tuesday, November 9, at 9:30 AM Pacific Time. Register online for free to attend the event.

The world faces some of the greatest challenges ever. The last ten years have seen a dramatic technological acceleration. However, the past 18 months have witnessed a seismic shift in the way we live, work and connect. These challenges can be solved by both heroic innovation and communal action. We need to rewire our thinking and discourse. This is RE:WIRED. This November, join us for a series conversations between technologists as well as people who are interested in the implications of those technologies on society and economic sustainability.

Ive quit Apple in 2019 to start LoveFrom, an independent design firm with Marc Newson. Apple stated that it would continue to be one of Ive’s primary clients. However, it is not clear which Apple products he helped design since leaving the company. Apple confirmed that Ive was involved in the design of the 24-inch iMac, but did not specify if that work took place after he left Apple.

LoveFrom has entered into multi-year design partnership agreements with brands such as Ferrari and Airbnb.

9to5Mac noticed Ive's participation at RE:WIRED earlier. CISA director Jen Easterly and actor John Cho will be speaking at the event. Moderna CEO Stphane Bangle, EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi and EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi will also be present.
