1946 To Today

The ipod is a portable media player which stores and plays digital material including music, photographs and videos. It is one of the most successful portable media devices on the market. The original design of ipod nano was launched in 2005. This example is the fourth generation design.

It was developed by Apple Inc. under lead designer Jonathan Ive who studied Product Design in the 1980s at Newcastle Polytechnic (now Northumbria University).

Jonathan Ive has been awarded with many honours. He was knighted at Buckingham Palace by Princess Anne in 2012 for services to ‘Design and Enterprise’. In 2013 he became one of the few people to receive a gold BBC Blue Peter badge for ‘inspiring children around the world’!

What other creative geniuses will emerge from the North East’s universities in the future?
