Designing for the Human Form
Once recognized solely as the soft art playing within the hard edges of commerce, it is now at the forefront of business. It stirs emotions. It builds brands. It decides which products win or lose.
The importance of design is very evident in the personal communications and entertainment market as consumers demand products that effectively combine superior sound technology with the fashion standards of apparel, jewelry or eyewear – a delicate and complex challenge.
Led by Darrin Caddes, vice president of Corporate Design, Plantronics Design boasts a world-class team that is doing something truly unique in design – and achieving creative and commercial success in the process. Assembled from some of the world's most renowned design companies, such as BMW, Herman-Miller, Nike, Nokia, and Motorola, Plantronics Design has achieved international acclaim – including the iF Design and CES Innovation awards – and continues to pioneer new trends.
Plantronics Design treats the human form as a canvas from which to begin the inspiration process. The team's expertise in human behavior and anatomy, ergonomics, color, proportion and complex surface development converge in the design of advanced products that look beautiful and become extensions of the body. By marrying the intricacies of sound innovation with the intimacy of personal fashion and comfort, Plantronics Design enables people to express their style preferences and individuality through headsets.
