Damixa is an example of a company that have chosen to focus aggressively on design resarch and product innovation as a way forward. A new 5-year strategy is started with design and user-involvement as central growth drivers. During the development of Damixa Clover Easy, we have focused on both functionality and aesthetics and it has so far resulted in satisfied users and three design distinctions. This is an example of the fact that a good user experience contains the potential to be a definite growth potential. Here we have chosen to collaborate with design concern who are specialists in that department.
