”The value of design shines through when it helps to turn technological innovation into an engaging product that people can intuitively use and feel an attachment to,” said Sean Carney, Chief Design Officer at Philips. “We know that we can only create meaningful and relevant solutions by having a deep understanding of people’s needs and desires. That is why it is so important that we continuously seek the user’s perspective and anticipate their needs.”
Philips has a creative, iterative, multi-disciplinary approach to design with a people-centric focus. There are over 35 different competencies within the design team ranging from sociologists and anthropologists to interaction designers, user experience architects and industrial designers.
