私がジョナサン・アイブへ不信感を持っている理由(笑)

私がジョナサン・アイブへ不信感を持っている理由(笑) | Apple/Macテクノロジー研究所

そのアイブの姿は必ずといってよいほどシャツ1枚であり、その些かマッチョな身体にその姿は似合わないと私は常々思っている(爆)。

※個人的にこの姿は…少なくともメディアに登場する場合には世界的なデザイナーとしてふさわしくなく、もう少しお洒落をしていただきたい(笑)

シャツの色はともかく、私の子供の頃にはこんなシャツ1枚とステテコ姿で縁台に座って将棋を打っていたオヤジ達が沢山いたが、そんな男たちを思い出してしまう…。したがって大きなお世話だと知りつつも個人的にはプロダクトデザイン以前にご自分の身につけるものを…いや普段着はどうでもよいが少なくともメディアに登場する際には着衣を再デザインすべきではないか…と思ったりもする(笑)。「先ず隗(かい)より始めよ」であろう…。

     *     *     *

一端大きな不信感を持ってしまうとどうにもそうした目で彼の仕事を見てしまう…。そうした懐疑的な目で見ると例えば新しく発表された円筒形のMac Proは疑問だらけのデザインである。しかも先の初代iMacのマウスを思い起こすとどうやらアイブは円という形が好みなのではないか…。

今回iPhone 5c用としてリリースされた専用カバーには多くの円形で型抜きされたデザインが採用されている。まあ、円形の穴といえばフロントに空いた沢山の小さな穴を持つ現行Mac Proを思い出すが、iPhone 5cケースのそれはサイズが大きいだけにダサク感じて好きになれない。なにが…どこがAppleらしさ、斬新さなのだろうか?

Apple’s Jony Ive and Designer Marc Newson on Their Shared “Level of Perfection”: “It Is Actually Very Sick” | Vanity Fair

At Sotheby’s New York this November, the world will get a unique tutorial from two masters of design. Collaborating for the first time, Apple’s Jonathan Ive and his chum, the equally acclaimed Marc Newson, have selected or made more than 40 objects for an auction to benefit Bono’s Product (Red) anti-H.I.V. campaign. Meeting with Ive and Newson, Paul Goldberger explores the shared obsession and philosophy behind everything from iPhones to jumbo-jet interiors.

Ive is making the point that whilst embellishments (like skeuomorphic design elements) can be perceived as clutter, that’s not the core problem. The actual issue is that such designs focus on analogy rather than essence: a paper book itself, rather than the novel inside.

Beauty, Truth, and Jony Ive | Hypercritical

It’s interesting that Jobs and Ive saw eye to eye on hardware design and yet seemed far apart, at least in Jobs’s final years, when it comes to software design. While Jobs was reportedly a champion of rich Corinthian leather, Ive could only wince when asked about it in an interview.

I’m confident that we’ll see less leather, wood, felt, and animated reel-to-reel tapes in Apple’s future software products, but the question remains: what does it mean for an application or an OS to be true to itself?

Jony Ive is not a Graphic Designer | stratēchery

You know we all can look at the same object, but we will all perceive it in a very unique way. It means something different to each of us. Part of the job of a designer is to try to understand what happens between physically seeing something and interpreting it.

Apple’s iOS 7 Will Ship On Time, Sources Say | AllThingsD

I’ve heard similar descriptions from sources who say iOS 7 is iOS “de-glitzed.”

“Put it this way,” said one source who has been briefed on iOS. “You know Game Center’s green felt craps table? Well, goodbye, Circus Circus.”

Not a surprise, really. With Scott Forstall — an advocate for flashy, skeuomorphic design and its stitched-leather and faux-wood-grain flourishes — now gone from Apple, and Ive in an expanded role, the current and former Apple employees I’ve spoken to say iOS 7 was destined for a new coat of paint. As one said, “Sounds like a much-needed ‘de-Forstallization.’”

Jony Ive paints a fresh, yet familiar, look for iOS 7 | 9to5Mac

iOS 7 is codenamed “Innsbruck,” according to three people familiar with the OS. The interface changes include an all-new icon set for Apple’s native apps in addition to newly designed tool bars, tab bars, and other fundamental interface features across the system.

Innsbruck is the capital city of the federal state of Tyrol in western Austria, known for its skiing. You may recall that all previous codenames of iOS builds have been named after ski resorts. iOS 6 was “Sundance”, for example.

Some suggested that in Apple’s next mobile operating system, Ive is pushing a more “flat design” that is starker and simpler, according to developers who have spoken to Apple employees but didn’t have further details. Overall, they expect any changes to be pretty conservative. For the past few years, Apple has unveiled versions of its mobile operating system in the summer.
