In Graduate School, one of the buzzwords professors love to discuss is "Design Thinking." Design Thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding (Dam and Siang). Design Thinking enables a company to understand consumer needs to serve their audience better. For this project, I contacted different companies to learn how the organizations apply Design Thinking into their market offerings. I had the opportunity to talk with Sonix to learn more about their organization.

3. What are the quintessential Sonix products customers should buy?
I say everything :) but if I had to choose my top 5 I would say every single one of our phone cases, especially if you have an iPhone 12, I highly recommend the MagSafe Compatible Phone Cases. The others would be Magnetic Link Chargers, Pedestal Phone Stand, UV Sanitizing Box, and the newest and best quality Percussive Massager that we just launched!
