Please join us for a conversation with the VP of Corporate Design at Plantronics, Darrin Caddes about Product Intimacy.
Darrin Caddes spent more than 20 years designing products for some of the world's most prestigious automotive and motorcycle brands, including BMW, Fiat and Indian Motorcycle. That background would seem an odd fit for Plantronics, but in actuality, it informs the very unique and visceral design philosophy that Darrin brings to the company each day.
As vice president of Corporate Design, Caddes has assembled a world-class team of industrial design (ID) professionals from leading design companies, such as Herman Miller, Motorola, Nike, and Nokia. That team works to ensure that Plantronics products effectively marry the intricacies of superior sound technology, for which the company has been known for more than 40 years, with the intimacy of personal fashion and comfort – and do so in a very small and elegant package.
