Extraordinary industrial design for ordinary products: it’s what propels manufacturers toward world domination of their market sectors. When I worked on the team that launched a wearable, stylish, durable Bluetooth headset for mobile phone users into the consumer electronics retail market, we paid close attention to the upfront industrial design cycle.Validation for our marketing and sales team was the product’s sell-through rate by every leading wireless carrier in the US and Europe, not to mention the shelf space we won at the best electronics retailers in every market. It’s a sweet feeling to spot your product tucked around ears in a crowd, and know your hard work paid off.
Before that, though, the team was especially proud about winning a reddot design award. Herewith, find more recent award-winning products that turn ordinary tasks into the sublime (thanks to iF Design).
