Portfolio Director, IDEO Palo Alto
I'm a creative with a history of somehow always finding myself surrounded by techies... and lovin' it. At IDEO, I leverage immersive media technologies such as VR/AR to design rad future visions with physical interactions.
What you won't learn from my bio:
I lived in a redwood tree for a summer in college and for ___, I would do it again.
After 20 years of interaction, design, and storytelling in the film industry, Dav Rauch now directs product development at IDEO with a focus on immersive experience design and emerging tech such as VR/AR. Most recently, Dav helped shape design concepts for the future of gaming, a robotic vision system for the blind, an app keeping HIV+ youth adherent to their meds, a “phygital” game to help kids understand coding, and the consumer experience of autonomous space flight. He has been invited to give talks at events such as the SemiPermanent Design Conferences, the San Francisco Film Society, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, and American Cinemateque. A Taurus on the cusp of Aries, Dav enjoys sunset jaunts along the beach, cooking, eating, surfing, and star spangled pants.
