Designing the Success of ‘Future’ Products

For the past few years, TriAd has been on the ground floor of three very exciting consumer products that are hitting the market nationwide.

In 2008, my good friend Paul Hammock convinced me to volunteer in the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' 'Smokey Bear' exhibit at the Ohio State Fair. I thought I would be interacting with people, encouraging them to talk to the giant, animatronic bear. But Paul quickly informed me that I would [...]
