The company was founded in Boston as Design Continuum in 1983.[2] Their goal was simple: to design products for businesses. Since then, the mission has grown to include strategy and brand services along with experience and product design.[3]

The firm now employs approximately 200 people across its four offices.[3] The company has worked with clients in industries including: Health and Medical, Financial Services, Consumer Products, Education, Retail and Hospitality, and Social Innovation. Project work includes the Swiffer for Procter & Gamble,[4] the Reebok Pump,[5] and the initial design direction for the MIT Media Lab's $100 laptop.[6]

The company has won over 200 design awards and filed more than 330 design and utility patents.[7] Practitioners at the company have been featured in the book A Whole New Mind by Daniel H. Pink.[8] During the summer of 2007, the company hosted the finale of the PBS series, “Design Squad,” a show that encourages kids to explore design and engineering as a career path.[9]
