Above: Jony Ive with his new design hire Marc Newson. The two are old friends.
Newson and Ive have collaborated on projects before. Last year they designed the Leica camera for Bono’s (RED) auction.
Newson will work on projects outside Apple as well, according to Vanity Fair.
It’s also interesting to note that Newson has designed luxury watches, and even started his own watch brand.
His hire comes as Apple has begun positioning itself as a luxury brand. The tech goliath recently poached Burberry’s CEO, Angela Ahrendts.
Paul Deneve — now Apple’s VP of Special Projects — came to Cupertino last year after serving as CEO of Yves Saint Laurent.
