Can’t Help but Love This: Apple’s Sir Jonathan Ive Reviews Some Designs
I didn’t know anything about the tv show Blue Peter, although it turns out to be the longest running children’s show on television (it’s on BBC) and looks pretty fantastic (they make a nifty birdfeeder out of an orange rind, among other things).
The show apparently inspired Jony Ive in his childhood. Sir Jonathan Ive, actually, as he has been knighted by the Queen. The legendary, forward-thinking, and quite humble Apple designer reviews some thoughtful ideas submitted by young viewers of Blue Peter for a combination lunchbox-pencil case-bookbag in this piece. I found it completely and utterly charming.
Thank you, Daring Fireball for pointing me to it.
