After announcing his decision earlier in June to depart from Apple after more than 30 years at the company, famed designer Jony Ive‘s name and image has now been officially removed from the tech giant’s executive leadership page.

Ive has had a long and illustrious career at Apple, contributing to some of the company’s most iconic products, such as the iMac G3, the iPod, and the revolutionary iPhone. It was reportedly suggested at the time that his departure was due to Apple CEO Tim Cook’s lack of interest in product design, a claim which Cook himself has later denied. Regardless, Ive has also announced that he would be starting his own design firm instead — named LoveFrom — and Apple will be the firm’s first client, with which the firm will “continue to work closely and on a range of projects.” Replacing Ive as the company’s head of design will be Evans Hankey and Alan Dye.
