Happy Birthday to Beyond Design! Today marks the start of the 18th year that Beyond Design has been in business. The company was formed in 1994 by Michael Prince, the President of the company. In the beginning, it was Prince and one intern. Today, our multi-faceted team includes specialists in research, design strategy, industrial design, interaction design, engineering, and branding. Our proprietary 4XD process takes concepts from research through development and into manufacturing. Our expertise in design research and strategy helps us create compelling products that connect with end-users for marketplace success.
In 2006, we moved into our current studio located in the Ravenswood Corridor, a previous industrial area in the northern part of the city. Prince located a former lighting parts warehouse and a vacant lot next door that was sculpted into a garden to accompany the studio. His idea behind creating the garden was to create a “Zen-like” atmosphere away from the noise of the metropolis. The building was completely renovated to represent our work style and core values. The open, team-oriented work environment fosters creativity and allows our designers a wealth of artistic space to brainstorm and collaborate.
Thanks to all those who have supported us over the years! Here’s to many more!
