September 9 , 2014
World-famous designer Marc Newson has formally joined Apple, reports say.
Newson, who has earlier designed watches and recently helped Apple with its designs, was described as “extraordinarily talented” by Jonathan Ive, the chief designer of the technology firm. Newson’s designs extend to products such as furniture, wristwatches, and clothes.
He said he was “enormously proud” to join Apple.
Ive said Newson was among the “most influential designers of this generation.”
Though Newson will work for Apple on special projects, he will continue to do independent projects unrelated to the company as well.
