Jonathan Ive Wins MDA Personal Achievement Award for the iPhone

Jonathan Ive Wins MDA AwardApple designer Jonathan Ive has just won another award to place on his mantle. The man behind the design of almost every Apple  ‘blockbuster smash hit’ (in Arnold Schwarzenegger voice) won the MDA Personal Achievement Award on July 1st.

Judges comments: “This year the MDA personal achievement award winner is Jonathan Ive for his design of the Apple IPhone and its user interface. The physical design of the IPhone and its intuitive user interface has completely redefined the mobile phone as we know it. The IPhone is arguably the most talked about consumer-electronics device that has hit the market in the last 5 years. Ive has designed the best implementation of a touch UI, this with the Safari web browser has definitely pushed mobile content into the forefront of the consumer consciousness. It sets the bar very high for all present and future competitors and as such, is shaking the mobile phone industry. We look forward to seeing Ive’s design innovation continuing to challenge the mobile world.”

The MDA’s are awards given out each year from the Mobile Data Association in recognition of companies and individuals in the UK that have made an ‘outstanding contribution to the uptake and success of mobile data over the last 12 months’.

Congratulations to Jonathan for this one. Well done.

P.S. I’m still pulling for Mr. Ive to take the helm for Apple down the road…
