Apple's senior vice president of industrial design, UK-born Jonathan Ive, will speak at a US design event later this month.

The award-winning designer will speak at the Art Center Design Conference in Pasadena, California on March 25 (5-7pm).

Ive is described as the "head of the team, revolutionising one product category after the next; the reason why every third person has white headphones coming out of their ears."
