Values, Process, Partnership, Trust

Having guided some of Silicon Valley's most successful start-ups through the development process, we know that Industrial Design is a key ingredient in a successful product but not the only ingredient. We hope to engage in creative collaborations that bring out the best ideas and solutions. Our process is designed to rigorously address user needs, manufacturing and long term product quality. We embrace engineering challenges and work together towards the best possible outcome.   

Our Studio

People, place, process and change make a culture. Our designers are from all over the world and bring unique perspectives to the common goals of excellent design and serving our clients. While design is our focus, our passions for art, food, music and active lifestyles are woven into the fabric of the studio. We are building an organization to provide opportunity for growth and advancement and hope to set a high bar for creativity, collaboration, service and satisfaction.
