Design and Art Direction

Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Apple's head of industrial design Jonathan Ive were in London on Wednesday night to (D&AD), according to Macworld UK. Apple took home Silver Awards for both the fourth-generation iPod and iPod mini in the 'Products for the Home' category (Yellow Pencil) and a Silver Award (Yellow Pencil) for the Cinema Display in the 'Product for Work and Industry' category. The report also notes that Ive received a special award in recognition of his world-class achievements in design: the D&AD president's award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry. The award, chosen by the D&AD president himself, was described as "perhaps the biggest professional recognition" for Apple's design guru.

    Jobs accepts Ive's award

    That would seem a little unusual? The article indicates 'asked' not offered... Hubris, photo op, employer priviledge or unbridled praise?

    Reason Jobs spoke

    MacWorld UK article UPDATED;

    Though no acceptance speeches were given by other awards recipients, Jobs had previously told the D&AD that he would like to say something about Ive. Given that Ive was receiving a President's Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry, the D&AD agreed to this.
