Re: ARE ALL TV REMOTE CONTROLS BAD?

Here are a couple of remote projects I executed while working for Dish Network over a decade ago. The silver remotes (in various configurations based on number of TV's in the house) were the default offering, and the dark gray remote was offered as an 'easy to operate' option. The silver remotes wer...

Re: Patenting Sensory Experiences?

Seeing as how 'experience' is an individual interpretation of an interaction with something (UI, UX, scented toilet seat, etc.), it seems like that would be a tough patent to own. How many times have people used an object in a method outside of the designer's intent? Would that invalidate the experi...

Re: Yoplait's New Branding Strategy

Graphic design aside, I imagine the consumer experience of reaching for the glass container within the sea of squishy, squeezable containers will provide a considerable point of differentiation for 'Oui'. The relatively minimal label (compared to all the other plastic billboards of the competition) ...

Re: ELIO affordable efficient Transportation

I spoke to a couple of Elio folks at trade show earlier this summer. They had brought along the previous iteration of their prototype and were inviting everyone to take a seat, try it on. Cockpit looked and felt like it was assembled from outdated, off the shelf parts, but totally serviceable as a f...

Re: How does a Design Consultancy set up a Design Centre?

We are starting the process of redesigning the arrangement of our design teams, and I’ve been very interested in pursuing something along these lines. Currently our ID, Prototyping and Packaging teams all share a studio, the Graphics team has a dedicated space across the building, and the Design Eng...

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

What a compelling device. I'm wondering if this device would create a 'lust factor' for surgeons in the same way any quality tool would create for other craftsmen? Or say the latest Wacom device for designers? That surgical robot instantly created two very different scenarios for me: 1) a desire to ...

Re: Digital sketching on the iPad?

I've used quite a few of the larger, rubber tipped styli on the ipad, and have yet too be happy with any of them. My favored workflow with them would be to photograph a paper sketch, then paint digitally. They just don't have the detail I prefer. That being said, I was able to use the new Adobe Ink ...

Re: Own a Cintiq but still sketching on paper then scanning.

I use a similar workflow because I prefer to be able to quickly review all my sketch work at once, and it's too inconvenient to print out every sketch, retrieve it from the printer, then back to my desk. Once the sketches are on the wall, I find it much easier to review as well as pick out the ideas...
