“When people ask me what IDEO does, I say we design neat stuff,” says David Kelly, one of the firm’s founding partners. But neat stuff is just the beginning. Since its inception this world-renowned design firm has operated under the philosophy that in order to design for the future, you have to understand what’s missing in the present. Clearly, that philosophy has paid off. With a client list that reads like an A—Z of top businesses, from Amtrak and Canon to BMW, Nike, and Pepsi-Cola, IDEO has helped hundreds of companies leap to the forefront of the marketplace, earning them the kind of visibility and reputation that has made their name synonymous with innovation, excellence, and creativity.
This first in-depth study of IDEO’s background, working methods and design output explores how and why the firm continues to lead the way in industrial design. Filled with vibrant, fascinating shots that demonstrate IDEO’S unparalleled ingenuity, it reveals why IDEO’s strategies are as innovative as their concepts. From projects most people never even thought of redesigning (chocolates and flip-flops) to things we all wish could be designed better (office chairs, electronic books, and remote controls), IDEO helps companies and their consumers change the way we think about doing ordinary tasks. Whether it’s kitchens that speak to you, shopping carts that glide down aisles, trains that reach destinations more efficiently than planes, or sunglasses that help Olympic athletes compete more effortlessly, IDEO continues to be one step ahead of the present. This vibrant volume offers an inside look at an exciting firm—and future—brimming with neat stuff.

It's hard to believe that objects such as the Palm V organizer, the neat-squeeze dispenser, and the Polaroid i-zone camera have anything in common. Yet these were all developed at IDEO, a Palo Alto-based engineering and design firm. IDEO: Masters of Innovation gives us page after page of products that are compelling not just in name, but in concept, whether they are prototypes or manufactured products. The text of the book, unfortunately, is more about the firm than the firm's work, and, in keeping with that, the adjective-laden writing does not do much more than lavish praise. Still, the book is mostly composed of photographs of products and the sketches that produced them. Their strength, and the book's clean and beautiful design, transcend the lack of information in the writing, making it a worthy sourcebook of ideas and a good introduction to the work of this remarkable firm. --Juliette CezzarAbout the Author:
