About the Talk: You already know what the secret to design thinking is. It's inside you. And it may need a bit of prodding in order to make itself known to you. IDSA past president Mark Dziersk shares a few stories aimed at helping you emerge that secret.
While one of the simplest devices used in our daily health regimen, the toothbrush holds a position of prime importance. Dental health has a bearing on the health of the entire body and the better the brush, the better the teeth and gums. OralB’s seemingly simple redesign of the typical brush improved effectiveness to virtually make all previous designs obsolete.
LUNAR’s contributions to a new collaborative-development model that reaches across cultures is bringing a low-cost medical device to developing countries where the human need is great and traditional health care products are unaffordable.
LUNAR Design recently debuted a radio piece discussing the design process of the iconic toothbrush, Oral B. Oral B is a stick with bristles poking out of it. It doesn't even qualify as a simple machine, but the careful thought and design that went into the creation of the modern, angled bristle, fat handled toothbrush shows just how much brainpower goes into something that is designed to simply work well and not be noticed all that much (until it's time to buy the next one).
The Apple PowerBook was one of the most revolutionary computers ever made. It changed the way people used computers. It was highly portable and lightweight, but functioned as effectively as a desktop. We call them laptops today, and many users never leave home without one.
The original PowerBook series—the 140 and 170—were designed by Robert Brunner, IDSA; Gavin Ivester, IDSA; Suzanne Pierce; Jim Halicho; and Eric Takahashi of Apple Computer; Michael Antonczak of Indesign; and Matt Barthelemy of Lunar Design for Apple Computer, Inc.
In recounting his adventures with Lunar, the design leader shares brief case studies and outlines how a focus on creativity can shape a firm’s design planning. Run time: 54 minutes. (Note: Presentation begins @ 1:30)
