Design Incorporated is a company dedicated to making computers easier
to use by tailoring software and hardware around well-defined tasks.
We strongly believe that the best tool is always a tool built for
one specific task.
To this end we practice "physical interface design;" a combination
of perceptual psychology, workflow analysis, graphical user interface
design, industrial design, and simple good taste.
We started doing computer graphics and building software tools for
clients in 1982. In 1991 we began selling our own products. We were
the first in the world to offer a practical desktop virtual reality,
inScape. We were recognized by ID Magazine with a "Design Distinction
Award" for our patented Cricket 3D mouse, and won an award from
Computer Graphics World for the Monkey, an innovative, doll-like posture
input device for animators and users of anthropometric software.
We have built and designed human computer interfaces for clients as
diverse as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Boeing, Proctor and Gamble,
and Walt Disney Imagineering; using media as different as PostScript
printouts, virtual reality displays, database-generated Web pages,
plastic, metal, and electronics. We were commissioned by the Museum
of Modern Art to create a "near-future knowledge interface"
for the 2001 "Workspheres" exhibition.
