The designer behind many iPhone models will change the face of Airbnb

 


Sir Jony Ive, the prominent iPhone designer, will lead a project to redesign key Airbnb products and services as the company aims to change public perceptions about its brand.

The 53-year-old British designer left Apple in 2019 leaving behind some of the most iconic products in 2 decades.

Ive will help the rental property company redesign the website and app with the help of its design firm LoveFrom.

The rating system will be the one that will receive special attention. In the past Airbnb has been criticized for design choices.

The logo of the company which was supposed to represent something universal, according to many users on social media resembled intimate body parts and Airbnb designs were compared to pornographic content.
