Innovation Through Design Thinking 03/16/2006 12:00 PM WongTimothy Brown, CEO, IDEODescription: Not so long ago, Tim Brown recounts, designers belonged to a "priesthood." Given an assignment, a designer would disappear into a back room, "bring the result out under a black sheet and present it to the client." Brown and his colleagues at IDEO, the company that brought us the first Apple Macintosh mouse, couldn't have traveled farther from this notion. At IDEO, a "design thinker" must not only be intensely collaborative, but "empathic, as well as have a craft to making things real in the world." Since design flavors virtually all of our experiences, from products to services to spaces, a design thinker must explore a "landscape of innovation" that has to do with people, their needs, technology and business. Brown dips into three central "buckets" in the process of creating a new design: inspiration, ideation and implementation. credit MIT World -- special events and lectures license MIT TechTV

Design Thinking... What is That? To promote its new Athleisure Makeup line, Tarte partnered with social media "fitfluencers" to push the concept that "sporty is the new sexy." The campaign, titled Hustle & Glow, includes a beautifully produced video in which a woman wakes up in her spacious Malibu mansion and heads to the bathroom for a full beauty routine in preparation to . . . go on a solo run. The video was met with wide appreciation from Tarte fans (and nearly 80,000 YouTube views), with many saying it inspired them to get out there and look good on the asphalt (or sand). As athleisure becomes more than just a fashion trend, it’s extended into new, unexpected categories. In other words, yoga pants for your face. "These are high-maintenance products with a low-maintenance routine," says Tarte CMO Candace Craig Bulishak. Birchbox, the beauty e-tailer and subscription service, also noticed that their customers were among the women embracing the athleisure trend, says PR director Jenna Hilzenrath. More Than A Fad
