Hey, being a designer I am really excited about the revitalized direction we're taking here at IBM. We've announced the opening of the design studio, in Austin, you can read about it here -> IBM Unveils New Design Studio to Transform the Way Clients Interact with Software and Emerging Technologies
But even more than this great new center of the IBM Design thinking world, our entire company, every designer has been re-energized with this new direction, and we're applying this to our work, in the products you love (and maybe don't love so much) to turn them into compelling wonderful experiences.
To do this we're making use of of IBM Design Thinking, a guide and practice for building out designs. We want all of our products and solutions to Work together, Work the same, and Work for me. If you came to IBM Connect you may have seen some presentations that talked about this - and I included a small bit on this from my own presentation there.
I encourage you to check out this link, the presentations from IBM Connect and to reach out directly to me here, if you want to learn more about what we're doing in design....for you.
