Founded in 1984 by Charles Curbbun, DDSTUDIO is a highly respected Global Design + Innovation Firm headquartered Southern California.
With a legacy spanning over three decades, DDSTUDIO has evolved from an industrial design consultancy to a Strategic Human Centered Product Development Firm renowned for delivering exceptional design solutions.
Charles was born and educated in the UK, where he studied under Bill Moggridge, the co-founder of IDEO. Bill’s design philosophy was to ask people what they wanted, and then design something to fit those desires. Now known as Human Centered Design, DDSTUDIO’s approach is based on those sound principles.
Charles moved the company from Long Beach to San Diego to design the first Qualcomm phone and partner with other emerging technology companies.
DDSTUDIO’s clients are a mix of start-ups, SMEs and Large companies. Industries include Biotech, Medical Device, Casino Gaming, and more. We consistently bring value to our clients at any and every stage of development.
