On Thursday, I announced a plan to start his own design company called LoveFrom.

And, it will count Apple among its first clients.

Apple says I will continue to work closely with the firm on 'a range of projects' as it takes on its own ventures, and will remain in its current role until the departs later this year.

"After nearly 30 years and countless projects, I am most proud of the lasting work we have done to create a design team, process and culture at Apple that is without peer," Ive said.

"Today it's stronger, more vibrant, and more talented than at any point in Apple's history," Ive said.

'The team will certainly thrive under the excellent leadership of Evans, Alan and Jeff, who have been among my closest collaborators. I have the utmost confidence in my designer colleagues at Apple, who remain my closest friends, and I look forward to working with them for many years to come. '
