The faces you never see: Apple flies Sir Jony Ive and entire design team to London for D&AD

Sir Jonathan, who for all the acclaim bestowed upon him rarely makes public appearances, collected Apple’s awards for best brand and best design studio at D&AD’s 50th anniversary celebration in Battersea Park.

But rather than let one man take the plaudits, Apple took the unusual step of flying its entire design team over from San Francisco to celebrate the achievement as a group – a notable event given that Apple has seemingly never attended an awards bash before.

A lovely touch from Apple to ensure everyone who played their part in Apple’s design success gets the recognition they deserve as part of the best design team in the world. Congratulations guys.
