We design experiences and products that empower technology to influence positive change and commercial success.


Founded by Charles Curbbun in 1984, DDSTUDIO is recognized as a premier global product design firm. With over 30 years of experience, DDSTUDIO has evolved from an industrial design / engineering consultancy to a Strategic Human Centered Design Firm.


The team is highly experienced and thrives on staying ahead of the curve absorbing new social trends, technology, materials and processes. We are inclusive with our Clients, Associates and Users – and we have fun.


DDSTUDIO was one of the first creative firms to embrace UX/UI as an essential part of a product experience; helping countless clients integrate appropriate digital touchpoints to stay relevant. DDSTUDIO recognized the importance of designing physical + digital product experiences in parallel to ensure a seamless user experience for multiple workflows- often as part of an Enterprise connected system.
