Jony Ive can add British Visionary Innovator to his long list of design awards. The Apple design head was given the award by Britain's Intellectual Property Office as part of its World Intellectual Property Day celebration.
As noted in a Macworld UK report, Ive won with 46.6 percent of the vote. He was followed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man behind the HTTP protocol and the World Wide Web, who grabbed 18.6 percent.
Ive certainly has earned the award. Since he joined Apple permanently in 1997, the UK-born designer has played a prominent role in the design of the iMac, iPad, iPhone, Mac Pro, MacBook Pro/Air and other recent Apple products.
