What the space means to our employees

From the beginning, employees knew the center had a different vibe; it was a special place with creative energy.

I love being able to hold spontaneous group critiques on a label maker, with team members who are working on pens, hammers, and water bottles

The Design Center is the first place that I’ve worked that has been set up for collaborative design from the start. We’re only steps away from our Graphics partners, Studio Engineering, Usability, and a fully stocked prototype shop.

Anyone can build a building. The magic comes when the design of the building generates a special interactive relationship with the people inside.
