Western Washington University Design School Advisory Board
Founded in 1926 by design pioneer Walter Dorwin Teague, TEAGUE is the original design consultancy. As proof, our portfolio spans many firsts: the Polaroid camera, the UPS truck, Texaco-branded service stations, the Pringles canister, and the Xbox. Along the way, we've designed the interior of every Boeing commercial airplane ever produced--including the revolutionary 787 Dreamliner.At TEAGUE we make things--whether they're products, services, or experiences. We do this through interdisciplinary teams of industrial designers, interaction designers, researchers, strategists, engineers, and other talents spanning everything from branding to robotics. This imperative to make things is driven by our belief in connecting strategy with execution. We call this approach thinking through making and it's at the heart of everything we do.
