Digital Image 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.
