Eric Olson

Director of Design

Eric Olson

Director of Design

Background:

Eric is decidedly a minimalist. Not in the “Wallpaper magazine,” “uncomfortable couch” kind of way, but in the sense that he seldom buys anything (especially electronic gadgets). He believes that being a bad consumer can make a good designer because a bad consumer is not predisposed to buying objects unless they have real value. The bad consumer turned good designer evaluates design through the most critical eyes – their own.

Passion:

Part of Karten Design for 15 years, Eric is passionate about about being a leader for the design team. As Director of Design, he blends his design sensibilities with a keen understanding of technology integration to ensure the highest quality of work is being delivered. He enjoys directing studio projects and conducting reviews with both our internal team, and often while visiting local design schools around Los Angeles.

Education:

Art Center College of Design, B.S. in Product Design,
University of California, Los Angeles, B.A. in Design

A successful product?

I often catch myself weighing the value of a new product against its potential to screw up my life in some tiny way. Very few products offer potential benefits that make the risk of an ugly side worth accepting. Most gadgets I own are either mandatory (cursed cell phone) or gifts (I returned the digicam/watch for a jacket).

Ron Pierce

Vice President and Director of Design Strategy and Research

Ron Pierce

Vice President and Director of Design Strategy and Research

Background:

Design came to life for Ron when he bought an electric Braun razor by Dieter Rams. “It spoke to me,” Ron says. “I was so proud of that product.” It exemplified for him the ability of a utilitarian object to inspire an emotional connection. From that point, Ron’s career has traversed product design, retail, marketing and sales. Working at design consultancy Hauser, Ron noticed a shift in companies’ needs. They were no longer worrying about how to design, but what to design. Ron helped to launch a design research practice at Hauser to address this challenge. Since then, his focus has shifted from products to people– a subject he finds deeper, richer and more challenging.

Passion:

For Ron, it is more exciting to understand a problem than to find a solution. At Karten Design, he enjoys helping companies define the right problem. Ron believes that the answers to all design problems lie with people and his passion is for understanding all of the people who interact with a product. Now, leading a team of researchers, Ron is also passionate about introducing Design Research to a new generation of practitioners.

Education:

Your Influences?

I was lucky enough to learn about industrial design in the 8th grade. I visited the office of Harper Landell in Downtown Philadelphia. His studio was full of models of airplane transponders, fishing kits, washers and dryers. I fell in love. Landell became my mentor and I worked for him during summers through high school. Early in my professional career, I had the opportunity to work at JC Penney alongside leaders in design thinking like Jay Doblin, Bob Smith and Cooper Woodring. They taught me how to think in a different way that I learned in school, incorporating people and business into the design process.


Karen Radewald

Senior Visual Designer

Karen Radewald

Senior Visual Designer

Background:

Karen leverages a strong background in art and design to help her communicate. She demonstrated early talent in design, starting a jewelry company that was featured in Teen and Teen Vogue magazines. Not satisfied to use art for personal expression alone, she went on to study English, science, art history, and rhetoric, along with graphic design, to help her use her artistic abilities for persuasion—a skill she honed working at advertising agencies before joining Karten Design. Today, Karen users her persuasive design to create visuals that get designers interested and inspire them to act on Karten Design’s research.

Passion:

Karen is passionate about design’s ability to make information important. If information is beautifully visualized, she theorizes, people will feel compelled to spend more time with it and act on it. Recently, she used her ability to create beauty on behalf of one of her other passions—the ocean. Visualizing 10 years worth of ocean studies data in The 2010 Census of Marine Life, she helped to educate people about a field of science still in flux, with many new discoveries.

Education:

Indiana University Bloomington, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design

Your hero?

Malcolm X. No one else comes close. I read his book in high school, and it completely challenged everything I thought about both society and myself. I find a lot of inspiration in his approach to life—freedom, progression, power—and feel that it applies to design, where you are fighting for a vision and using your knowledge to defend it.

“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.” –Malcolm X

Chris Wu

Senior Designer

Chris Wu

Senior Designer

Background:

Growing up, Chris loved to take his toys apart just to see how they worked. His inclination for problem solving led him to study mechanical engineering. But there was an artistic side to Chris that wasn’t being fulfilled until he discovered design.  Continuing his education at Art Center, Chris learned his real talent lies in innovating not just products but everything around the products—the systems, strategies, services, and businesses. Today, Chris integrates all of his experience to design with a holistic mindset and the belief that design is a template to engender meaning. Otherwise, he says, we’re just creating stuff.

Passion:

Chris is passionate about possibilities, believing “What if…?” is one of the most powerful questions you can ask in the design process. It embodies all the possibilities that design can be without imposing restriction. With the belief that true creation does not happen face-down on a table sketching, Chris finds the most inspiration for his work from the conversations he has with co-workers and friends, where possibilities are limitless.

Education:

University of California, Berkeley, B.S. Mechanical Engineering
University of California, Los Angeles, Master of Science Mechanical Engineering
Art Center College of Design, B.S. Product Design

Technology?

For me, technology isn’t a product or a toy, but a tool that enhances a product. Many products house technology for technology’s sake, but it is vital to go deeper, to truly understand the context of the technology and the purpose it will serve. It has to go through a filter of experience and meaning for it to become something that people will love. If implemented in this way, technology can make people’s lives better and be used for good. Technology disappears when the user experience is amazing.
