We design experiences and products that empower technology to influence positive change and commercial success.
Founded by Charles Curbbun in 1984, DDSTUDIO is recognized as a premier global product design firm. With over 30 years of experience, DDSTUDIO has evolved from an industrial design / engineering consultancy to a Strategic Human Centered Design Firm.
The team is highly experienced and thrives on staying ahead of the curve absorbing new social trends, technology, materials and processes. We are inclusive with our Clients, Associates and Users – and we have fun.
DDSTUDIO was one of the first creative firms to embrace UX/UI as an essential part of a product experience; helping countless clients integrate appropriate digital touchpoints to stay relevant. DDSTUDIO recognized the importance of designing physical + digital product experiences in parallel to ensure a seamless user experience for multiple workflows- often as part of an Enterprise connected system.
Our design process is blend of Agile Principles and Human Centered Design – Agile HCD. As a human centered design firm, we believe that the best products come from early team alignment on three key pillars: understanding business strategy, users and technology.
Often times our client’s budget and schedule constraints limit the resources available for this critical early exploration and contextual understanding.
To overcome this challenge, we customize each program plan with a balance of design thinking discovery activities and agile rapid iteration sprints that also meet budget and schedule requirements.
Our phases: Opportunity Space, Innovation Space and Implementation Space provide a roadmap choreographed for multi-disciplined teams to achieve alignment towards solving the right problem from the user’s perspective and the synergistic collaboration needed for design excellence.
