Innovation's not cool unless your customers think its cool.

At Thing Tank we help our clients innovate by helping them understand their customers. Then we convert those insights into tangible product concepts, not just powerpoint decks.

We know how to make the right thing, make it elegant to use, and beautiful to look at.

We're an experience design shop that provides research and realization services for companies who want to know what their customers think.

And then act on it.

Thing Tank was founded in 2005 by Chris Luomanen. Prior to launching Thing Tank, Chris was a product designer, project manager, human factors researcher, prototype fabricator and workshop designer at IDEO. Chris also teaches design at Stanford University.
