Ah yes, Jonathan Ive... the Brit designer that saved the Apple brand and created pretty much every single one of Apples best selling products under Steve Jobs... not to mention the British ARM chips that sit in more or less every single phone in the world.

"Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive, KBE (born February 1967) is a British designer and the senior vice president of industrial design at Apple Inc. He is the leading designer and conceptual mind behind the iMac, titanium and aluminum PowerBook G4, PowerMac G4, PowerMac G5, G4 Cube, iBook, Mac Pro, MacBook, unibody MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad."
