Trailer Transcript:

Hi, I’m Dan Harden, and welcome to Prism. I am the founder, CEO, and Principal Designer at Whipsaw, a design agency in the Silicon Valley. We design and engineer every kind of product you can imagine: consumer electronics, housewares, medical equipment, wearables, robots, furniture, industrial products, and more.

Since our founding in 1999, we have brought over 1000 products to market for more than 300 clients, including Google, Samsung, Dell, Uber, Merck, and Nike; plus exciting startups like Roku, Dropcam, Harry’s, and Tonal.

As an industrial design consultant, I often get first exposure to some very cool future technology, and have had the opportunity to work with legendary people like Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Hartmut Esslinger, and Rupert Murdoch. Every project is a unique journey where people, business, technology, and design intertwine in complex and unpredictable ways.

These remarkable experiences that I’ve had as a designer are what inspired me to do a podcast. Like a glass prism that reveals the color hidden inside white light, this podcast will reveal the inside story behind innovation, especially the people that make it happen.

I will aim to uncover every guest’s unique point of view that fuels their individual creative genius. I hope you’ll join me on this pursuit and again, welcome to Prism.
