Apple design guru Jonathan Ive, best known for his work on the iPod and iMac, was named on Friday in the Queen’s Honours List for his achievements in industrial design.
“London-born Jonathan Ive, 38, Apple’s senior vice president of design, on Friday was awarded the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth,” reports Reuters. “The rank of CBE is the third most senior rank among the five British classes of chivalry. It was created in 1917 by King George V to honor noncombatants at the height of World War I. Only the first two orders qualify for knighthood.”
