Kirstin started her design career with IDEO, where she worked on a variety of products including mobile phones, before working for Hasbro and Vivid on inventing and developing toys and games. The Bang Creations studio expanded, so Kirstin joined to champion internal product development and ensure creativity was added to each and every product. In the last 10 years Bang Creations has licensed over a dozen ideas to various industries thanks to Kirstin’s creative drive and design problem solving input.
As Steve Jobs once said. “great things (in business) are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people”. Stefan believes a good design team is measured not only on what they create, but what they deliver, which is why Bang is relied on by their clients to live with the design right off the production line. Currently the team are involved in designing, developing and delivering products for the computer, luggage, furniture and automotive industries.
