Perry and Lester invent things: seashell robots that make toast, Boogie Woogie Elmo dolls that drive cars. They also invent entirely new economic systems. When Kodak and Duracell are broken up for parts by sharp venture capitalists, Perry and Lester help to invent the “New Work,” a New Deal for the technological era.

Gabriela Diego, IDSA | Playworld Systems Inc. Industrial Designer
Finalist in the 2009 IDEA awards. NEOS product. Leisure and Recreation category.
I graduated from University of Guadalajara in 1997 with a degree in Industrial Design. Immediately after graduation, I realized I didn’t like the fact that I knew a lot about product development but not much about how product affects businesses. So a couple of years after graduation I was holding a Master’s Degree in Marketing.
Industrial design has been a part of my life since I earned a bachelor's in industrial design from the University of Kansas and a master's in design from Cranbrook Academy of Art. I joined IDSA in 1967 and have enjoyed an interesting and rewarding career because I found my life's work and passion in the profession of industrial design.
