Centered in the bustling innovation epicenter of Cambridge, Massachusetts, our studio acts as a catalyst and convener of creative forces pushing the edges of what’s next, in greater Boston and beyond.

Grounded in a holistic approach, we have usurped corporate R&D by using venture design to identify, create, and launch products, brands, services, spaces, and experiences that create new opportunities for growth. This has led to new businesses and brands for our corporate partners like MassMutual’s Society of Grownups, groundbreaking citizen-centered digital platforms for USCIS and the new pilot for, and disruptive start ups like PillPack and Transatomic.

Conveniently located between Harvard and MIT, a renowned innovation hub, our studio is continuously experimenting with how to bring the best entrepreneurial, academic and creative minds together to tackle large, complex challenges, as in the future of energy with IDEO CoLab, or the Food + Future living lab with Target, or our partnerships with the Berklee School of Music, MIT Media Lab and the Harvard iLab.

We’re powered by a unique blend of geeks, technologists, craftsman, artists, brand strategists, business designers, design fiction creators, psychologists, design researchers, and digital alchemists—all unified by a shared spirit and purpose: to design for disruptive impact. Let’s invent the future together!

IDEO Cambridge is located in Central Square—between MIT and Harvard.
