Credited by colleagues, admirers, family and friends as the most influential designer of this century, Bill Moggridge co-founded IDEO, the renowned design and innovation firm, and served as the director of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for four years, re-defining the institution to better connect with a new generation of consumers and participants of contemporary design. Known for his leading role in interactive design, Moggridge valued interpersonal and interdisciplinary connections in creating new innovations that ultimately served to bring others together.

The memorial video below features colleagues and admirers who discuss his likeness and legacy for future generations.

In honor of his life and work, IDEO has created a memorial website to Moggridge’s memory, where visitors can share stories, pictures, and memories of the famous innovator.
