  • Talent Showcase: Jennifer Garrett of SDI Technologies

    Jennifer Garrett is an industrial designer currently working in the field of audio consumer electronics for New Jersey-based SDI Technologies. There she leads the design of products and packaging for the headphone division of iHome, the #1 market leader in iPod/iPhone electronics in North America, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Outside of her multi faceted, hands on role at work, Jennifer is also a performer, sword fighter, choreographer, belly dancer, costume creator, set and prop designer. With so many interests and hobbies, and a strong desire to connect with the end user, I had to find out how she transformed her fervent desire to create into a career.

  • Employer Spotlight: Bridge Design, San Francisco

    Bridge Design sees their work as creating delightfully integrated user experiences, rather than just exercising the sum of their collective disciplines. They excel in industrial design, design research, engineering and user-interface design for medical and biotech products. As you can see, this isn’t your typical design/innovation firm, so to get the full picture of what it’s like to work there, I asked just about everyone on the Bridge Design team to answer some questions about why they love working there, what their clients say about them, and… what’s in their fridge.
