The designer behind Apple iPhone, iPad and various Macs - Jonathan Ive - has just got Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE) title from the Queen. Mr. Ive has been working at Apple for over fifteen years.

"I am keenly aware that I benefit from a wonderful tradition in the UK of designing and making. I discovered at an early age that all I've ever wanted to do is design," said Jonathan Ive, the head of design at Apple, in an interview with BBC.

London-born designer Jonathan Ive is the senior vice president of industrial design at Apple. Since 1996, he has been responsible for leading a design team widely regarded as one of the world’s best. Mr. Ive holds a Bachelor of Arts and an honorary doctorate from Newcastle Polytechnic. In 2003, he was named designer of the year by the design museum London and awarded the title Royal Designer for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts.

Steve Jobs, a co-founder of Apple, described Mr Ive as his "spiritual partner" in his biography written by Walter Isaacson. However, some say that Mr. Ive was "hurt" by Mr. Jobs taking credit for innovations that came from the design team, according to BBC.
