Jonathan "Jony" Ive
Senior Vice President Industrial Design, Apple
Credit Ive with designing some of the most wildly popular devices in existence, including the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad. Though the soft-spoken Brit arrived at Apple in 1992, it wasn't until 1997, when Steve Jobs returned to the fold, that Ive's career took off. His first design, the iMac G3, made consumers and competitors the desktop computer could look like -- something that could be said of nearly every device he's crafted since.
