Kensington has chosen to opt out of the technology arms race and turned to product experience as a competitive advantage.
The result is Kensington’s Ci Lifestyle Collection, a new line of mice and keyboards for home and mobile users designed with extensive field research on customer experience in mind. [...]
[The company conducted] a field research study to uncover the behavior and psychology of home and mobile users. [...]
The team didn’t follow the research by going straight into design. Instead, they took a step back and formulated a product experience strategy that became the foundation of every thought throughout the process was put into the product. The strategy eventually took the form of three “design pillars,” — thinness, convertible power and sleep state — which were used to guide the work of the team as the design evolved.
