PROJECT: Hardware product reference line & software suite
Prior to selling off their technology assets, Zoran was one of the largest consumer electronics firms globally. I introduced to them the notion that they could convert their products to a line of “connected” products. Over several years, me and my contract technology team helped them form a connected products division, designing a full reference line of products, and spinning off several companies to provide specific product lines, including a company I helmed, Vidiva, and the resulting award-winning iSee product, amongst others.
PROJECTS: Various Interfaces and Experiences
From CDROM and DVD, to connected applications, I have helped with all aspects of the user design process across every form of technology. One part social engineering, one part brand integration, one part design innovation, and all hard-work, understanding and translating user requirements into a smooth functioning piece of technology is one of my specialties.
