OpenIDEO is a place where people design better, together for social good. It’s an online platform for creative thinkers: the veteran designer and the new guy who just signed on, the critic and the MBA, the active participant and the curious lurker. Together, this makes up the creative guts of OpenIDEO.

To become a place where good ideas gain momentum, OpenIDEO depends on participation — your inspirations, his comments, her concepts, our design process. It’s these efforts, these big and small moments of sharing and collaboration, that make this platform a dynamic resource for tackling significant global challenges.

IDEO, a design and innovation firm, developed OpenIDEO as a way to include a broader range of people in the design process through inspiration, concepting, and evaluation.

Principles of the OpenIDEO Community

#1: Inclusive
Recognize and enable all levels of participation from different disciplines. It’s about allowing anyone to contribute to the creative process. Whether it’s a great insight, a beautiful sketch, an encouraging build, or a few words of praise, the platform allows everyone to take part in and feel as if they are a part of the process.

#2: Community-centered
Remember the core strengths of the community and play to them. OpenIDEO is meant to foster a strong, vibrant, lively community that thrives on inspiration — and that we all trust will make a difference. Focusing on this community and its activities is essential.

#3: Collaborative
Promote teamwork among individuals and teams by recognizing the many roles that are crucial to each step of the design process. Always choose collaboration over competition, and create an atmosphere for building on one another’s ideas.

#4: Optimistic
Stay optimistic! You never know when a wild idea might enable others to get closer to a viable solution.

#5: Always in Beta
Design for continuous improvement and iteration and scale deliberately. That goes for the community, the platform, and these principles. To this end, please email your suggestions for making OpenIDEO better.

ScionAV and Toyota

Scion’s commitment to artistic expression provides a platform for passionate artists to focus on developing their art and exploring the endless possibilities.

The Scion brand often applies new practices in all aspects of its business and pushes the creativity envelope with non-traditional advertising and marketing to engage young consumers. Scion also supports originality through its programs in the artistic community. is a repository of information.

…the music videos get the most views, the interviews that we do are the only interviews with that artist. So if you’re a fan of that artist, it’s a big deal, because that’s the only video that gets behind the scenes. I wish those were viewed more. But the bloggers that promote our content prefer the videos, so that’s what they talk up and gets viewed.

The trend is that a lot of brands that are targeting that audience feel that they need to do a lifestyle strategy. Everyone has music initiatives now; Red Bull, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Scion…

We had to maintain brand awareness; it was strategic. If a brand doesn’t have new products to promote, it has to do something to maintain that interest. Alcohol companies, Pabst Blue Ribbon for example, can’t keep boasting about the flavor of the beer. At some point, the brand has to align itself with a lifestyle.

Electronic Beats and Deutsche Telekom

Electronic Beats (EB) is the international music program by  Deutsche Telekom centred around live music and club events throughout Europe’s major cities. All activities share a virtual home at with the latest news on artists and events. Committed to the cause of contemporary music, the site features its own EB Radio and EB TV. Completing the media portfolio is the very collectableEB print magazine and the Slices DVD, both appear quarterly through selected distribution channels.

- Online platforms: EB Radio, TV und Web Shop

Electronic Beats is an ambitious music-sponsoring program of the Deutsche Telekom. The long list of artists who’ve taken the stage at Electronic Beats events over the past ten years is a testament to just how ambitious it’s become – from Hot Chip, Peaches and Caribou to Dieter Meier, The Human League and Donna Summer.

Since the relaunch of both, the English-language website and Electronic Beats Magazine in the summer of 2011, EB has also managed to pull a number of renowned journalists on board. Under the supervision of former editor-in-chief of Spex Magazine Max Dax and music journalist (and former booker of the legendary Tresor club) Alexandra Dröner, EB has recruited such illustrious writers and critics as Hans Ulrich Obrist, former editor-in-chief of Interview Magazine Glenn O’Brien, and editor-in-chief of The Wire Chris Bohn to help shape its profile. Contributions by musicians, producers and visual artists such as Arto Lindsay, Stefan Betke and Armin Linke (among others) allow for the voices of the artists themselves to be heard.

The Electronic Beats Program is an internally integrated project that also functions as a whole. Musicians that perform within the EB framework eventually appear as contributors and vice versa, sharing their knowledge and experience with readers, viewers and listeners in various media formats – from the Slices DVD magazine to Electronic Beats Web Radio. Worldwide, there are very few large corporations that conceive of their sponsoring programs so boldly and so broadly. Those who experience it will know. EB believes that in an increasingly complex society, complicated connections should be communicated with passion and simplicity.

Concerts and festivals remain at the core of what Electronic Beats is about. Year after year, live events are held in major cities all over Europe – from Berlin, Prague, and Budapest, to Vienna, Warsaw and Cologne. The presentation and celebration of live music stands in contrast to the comfort of downloading music onto a phone or from a home computer. Live audiences can choose from an array of impressive avant-garde and club-oriented acts as well as more established artists – all for affordable prices and always in interesting locations.

These shows are increasingly accessible via digital EB-TV. Exclusive live clips from over 100 Electronic Beats Festivals and from such acts such as Fever Ray, Planningtorock, or Gossip can be accessed in HD quality via Since 2007, Electronic Beats has received numerous BCP Awards, including one gold and five silver, as well as various distinctions from the annual Lead Awards for Year after year, Slices DVD magazine has consistently topped the readers’ polls of a number of electronic music publications, including De:Bug, Spex und Groove Magazine.
And even after ten years on the road, we’re still just getting started . . .
