Apple design head Jonathan Ive to be interviewed at Cannes

updated 12:43 pm EDT, Thu June 5, 2014

Topic to be (RED) designs

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has announced an interview of U2 frontman Bono and lead Apple designer Jonathan Ive on June 21st. Bono is due to receive the first-ever LionHeart award at the festival for his (RED) charity, and so he and Ive will be interviewed about their collaboration on (RED) products. The interview is due to last 45 minutes; it's not clear if people will be able to watch the interview online later.

(RED) donates some of the revenues from specially-branded products toward the Global Fund, which fights AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis. Apple sells relatively few products that qualify; these mostly include a handful of cases, and red versions of the iPod touch, nano, and shuffle. iPhones, iPads, and Macs -- Apple's most lucrative products -- are excluded.

Ive has however done work beyond Apple's regular contributions. Last year he collaborated with another designer, Marc Newson, on specially-crafted products for a (RED) auction. Among other items sold were a red Mac Pro and gold-plated EarPods.
