Jonathan Ive, the brain behind the iMac design, is returning to his homeland in November to deliver the British Design and Art Direction (D&AD) President’s Lecture.

The British-born designer is vice president of Design at Apple, and his iMac design won the coveted 1999 D&AD Gold Award. According to D&AD, the Apple design team is now considered one of the best in the world.

Ive’s lecture will give an insight into how his translucent creation changed the world’s perceptions about personal computers. The talk takes place at the Institute of Education in London, at 7.15pm on Thursday, November 18.

Tickets are priced at £10 for D&AD members, £15 for non-members and £5 concessions. To book, call John Green on 0171 840 1111.
