Some Previous Projects to Check Out:
Melon: IDEO helped start-up Melon rebrand themselves and launch a successful kickstarter campaign to fund their breakthrough technology that enables people to measure their brain activity and track their mental focus.
Next Door for State Farm Insurance: IDEO found that many young people viewed insurance companies as “intimidating” and “unwelcoming,” selling products and services that were confusing, expensive, and irrelevant to their contemporary lifestyles.
To help change this perception, the team created a branded storefront and interior space; a website and an iPad Financial Coaching tool; concepts for classes and community events; and a framework for the new venture’s organization structure.
Pill Pack: IDEO and start-up Pill Pack worked together on refining the company’s brand vision, strategy, and identity across channels and used this framework to completely redesign PillPack’s website and private dashboard for logged-in customers.
