Jonathan Ive awarded Honorary Doctorate

UK-based iLounge Forums member “Doc Evils” has shared his experience in attending an award ceremony presenting Apple’s Jonathan Ive with an Honorary Doctorate of the University of the Arts London. The award is in “recognition of the outstanding contribution that an individual has made to his or her chosen field of endeavor.” Ive is the Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple and is behind the company’s most lauded designs, such as the iMac and iPod.

“Doc Evils” was amongst an audience of students selected from various design courses and members of the press. After the presentation of his doctorate, the editor of British GQ magazine and former student of the college, Dylan Jones, chaired a question and answer session with Ive which lasted over two hours. During the cocktail party which followed the presentation and questions,“Doc Evils” was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Ive, which was without doubt the highlight of the event for him.

Update: In related news, Ive collected his CBE from Her Majesty the Queen in London today. The award was announced in December 2005. In a statement at the time, Apple said: “We are as proud as could be that Jonny is receiving such a prestigious commendation.”

Great companies are made of great people, not just great products (products don’t make themselves!). Well done, Mr. Ive.

Doc Evils, you lucky bastard. :-)
