The industrial design veteran Christopher stringer worked at Apple for almost 21 years, is leaving the company. This publication reports The Information.
At Apple, he worked under the guidance of Jonathan Ive, who from 2005 to 2015 he was Vice-President of the Corporation in industrial design, and currently holds the post of Director for design. Stringer has worked on iPhone design and acted as a witness at the trial between Apple and Samsung in 2012. Working together with Jonathan Aviom, stringer had a hand in the design of almost all popular Apple products ranging from iPhone and iPad, the iMac and ending with the Magic Mouse.
The team of Jonathan Ive almost never reports on reshuffle in their ranks, so the new job Christopher Stringer is not known. The Department employs about 20 people, and the backbone of this team working side by side since the mid nineties. In such a small community of designers each employee on the weight of the gold. The departure of Stringer, took place two years after the appointment of Jonathan Ive to the position of Director on Apple’s design.
Stringer is the second veteran of Apple who left the company over the last year. In April 2016, left the company Daniel Koster, who has also worked in the design Department of the California Corporation. He was recruited by manufacturer of digital cameras for extreme photography, GoPro, where he assumed the position of Vice-President.
Earlier there were rumors about a possible departure from Apple’s Jonathan Ive. This, in particular, said the famous journalist, the author of the blog Daring Fireball John Gruber. According to him, now Ive retreated into the background and ceased to design iPhone and iPad from day to day, entrusting the job to others. Later this information got denial.
