- Jony Ive filmed a commencement address for the California College of the Arts.
- The address was virtual due to distancing rules.
Former head of design at Apple, Jony Ive, might not be running things at Apple Park anymore but he's still a big deal in the world of art and design. So it's no surprise that he was asked to handle the commencement address for the California College of the Arts with the whole thing done remotely due to local restrictions.
Ive was responsible for some of the best – and worse – designs to come out of Apple and is undoubtedly one of his generation's shining lights. Those graduating will hope that they can be the same to their generation and who knows, maybe they'll end up working at Apple one day as well.
