Dickon Isaacs, IDSA | Design Fellow/VP of Design, Intuit
Born in St. Ives, England—a coastal haven for painters, sculptors and potters—Dickon Isaacs, IDSA, was influenced and attracted to art and design at an early age.
For more than 20 years, he's designed for a diverse set of industries including furniture, luggage, medical, environments, packaging, housewares and CE in London (FM Design/IDEO), San Francisco (IDEO) and Chicago (IDEO/Motorola Mobility). This breadth of consultant and corporate experiences, combined with a global view of design, gives Isaacs, a former IDEA winner, a rare perspective. Throughout his career he has shared those experiences with the new design generation in the United Kingdom and the United States. The common thread throughout his work has been creating breakthrough products, experiences and teams.
As creative director of strategy, CMF and wearables for Motorola, Isaacs helped guide the company's strategic design direction—including the moto 360 franchise—fusing ID, CMF, UX, web and packaging to create products and experiences that people love. In his new role as Intuit’s VP of Design, Isaacs is extremely excited to join the executive leadership team and to help elevate the level of design impact and dialogue within the company—and the industry at large.
