The designer, who joined Apple back in 1992, is departing to start his own design firm, with Apple as a primary client.

Ive hasn’t left yet but will depart later this year.

He’s currently the Chief Design Officer for the company, where he’s overseen the design of some of Apple’s most iconic products—including the iPhone.

Though perhaps his best-known product is the original iMac, whose whimsical design notably helped propel the company back into the good graces of the general public.

Ive told Financial Times that he plans to focus on wearables and healthcare at his new company, where he will be joined by fellow Apple designer, Marc Newson.

Newson joined Apple in 2014 after previously working with Ive on a series of products for RED’s annual auction, including a solid aluminium desk.
