Business of Design Deep Dive — HUMANITY INNOVATION LABS

Design has long proven itself as a vital component of corporate culture, service offerings, bottom line growth, and exceptional customer experiences. Yet many organizations struggle with how to fully embrace and implement design outside of traditional applications. Meanwhile, McKinsey's 2020 report "The Business Value of Design" describes in detail how companies with deep design integration in their organizations are more likely to outperform their counterparts who lack this capability. Increasingly, the world’s most innovative companies have high-ranking positions such as chief design officers and are making room for design to influence business strategy across wide-ranging areas of the organization.

Join is for the Business of Design Deep Dive Virtual Event November 2nd and 3rd.

What we do...why we do it..and why it matters...

HIL uses a hybrid methodology to develop emerging technologies. By blending Mixed Methods Research, User Experience, User Interface Design and Industrial Design we are able to approach product development of consumer devices from a holistic perspective. Wearables typicaly, include both the physical device side and digital interactive experience.

By understanding users and how they use devices in specific usage scenarios and contexts, it becomes much easier to design a product experience that maps to the specific features and functionality that enhances the over all experience.

Consumers have many touch points with a product and a business. Getting it right takes time and effort, but in the end consumers know the difference. #customer-loyalty comes from knowing you users and what they want.. #wearables

Bodies aren’t static, they don’t have straight lines, and after a while they tend to get dirty. So wearable systems embedded in garments and accessories have to be robust, flexible, and, ideally, washable (or at least removable). Here’s a look under the hood — or hoodie, as it were — at th...

Flexible micro LEDs may reshape future of wearables
Novel devices can Be folded, cut, attached to surface. University of Texas at Dallas researchers and their international colleagues have developed a method to create micro LEDs that can be folded, twisted, cut and stuck to different surfaces. The research, published online in June in the journal Science Advances, helps pave the way for the next generation of flexible, wearable technology.

Dr. Moon Kim Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
Louis Beecherl Jr., research and technical expertise focus on nanofabrication and the manipulation and characterization of materials and devices for electronic and photonic applications. His expertise includes high-resolution electron microscopy, wafer bonding technology, 3-D functional nanostructures and nanodevices. University of Texas, Dallas.

The Raw Truth For Businesses Located in Portland, Oregon

This article written by Lindsay Nadrich, Koin 6 News is one that sheds some needed light on the impact COVID and the ongoing protests are continuing to have on local businesses. For the last five years Humanity Innovation Labs has been located in the Northwest and Pearl District, Portland. We are a consultancy that focuses on wearables www.humanityinnovationlabs.com, so we do not rely on foot traffic like retailers and restaurants do. But we do rely heavily on our governing bodies at the state and local level to ensure our rights are protected, our families, our dwellings, and our work environments. "Greg Goodman, the co-president of the Downtown Development Group, the number of businesses that are moving out side of downtown is staggering. Daimler Chrysler, AirB&B, Banana Republic, Microsoft are permanently closing their retail stores. Saucebox and Google, who leased 90,000 square feet in the Macy’s building have stopped construction improvements."

Can independent design studios survive COVID-19?

Nice perspective from “New Deal Design” on how a constancy’s business models works in relation to how “nice to have” service models have been affected by COVID.

Nice to have, meaning “design services.” Most companies cut budgets and put an research and design, the “unknown” efforts on pause. To ensure overhead expenditures and the “knowns” are first priority.

“What’s tricky is that the business of a consultancy doesn’t necessarily scale its returns as many businesses do. The more clients you sign at any one time, the more designers you need on staff to accommodate them. The ratio of expenses to revenue doesn’t dramatically shift.”

There is a sweet spot though. So that the burn rate doesn’t create a tipping point of spinning your consultancy on a hamster wheel with no rewards insight. For each small, medium, or large consultancy that sweet spot, which is the profitable part needs to be the foundation that all decisions are made from.

After 20 years in business, 2020 was supposed to be a victory lap for New Deal Design. Then COVID-19 struck.
