Glen Privot Krivochta treated the OI Engine studio to an evening of wine and cheese, with a delectable spread from Savoy, France. Glen got into full character, using fancy hand gestures and encouraging the group to pronounce each variety with the proper accent.

The countdown is over! Lawrence Abrahamson was pleased to announce the arrival of the New York studio‘s newest hire, a shiny new laser cutter. It fits in perfectly, and New Yorkers dove into learning about the machine with Lasers 101, Practical Application of Lasers, and Showing Off With Lasers. Special thanks to ChIDEO laser master John Grimley for showing the ropes, and to Hadley Lord for taking such thorough notes.

Rookie Cookie, an opportunity for new hires to takeover San Francisco‘s weekly Tea Time, was refreshingly healthy this week. Hilary Braseth and Jim Legeman treated the studio to coconut chia seed pudding, which was served up with fresh fruit and chocolate chips. Mmm mmm good!

The Tokyo studio took IDEO value “Talk Less, Do More” to heart when they built their new make space in one day! The group is jazzed about their custom designed desks and shiny new 3D printer.
