About Integrated Design Systems

In 1983, Michael Paloian founded Integrated Design Systems. Since then, he and his team have built an industrial design firm with an enviable reputation – providing clients with world-class designs of sophisticated, often very complicated products for international markets.

Michael is the widely respected founder and president of IDS. He wears many hats – industrial designer, inventor, artist, lecturer, and educator. He has developed a broad range of products by working closely with local, national, and international clients. He holds an undergraduate degree in Plastics Engineering and a Master of Industrial Design. In addition, his extensive experience is the basis for his branded and unique insights into the field of Industrial Design.

“I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.”

About five centuries ago, Michelangelo said, “The sculpture is already complete within the marble block before I start my work. It is already there. I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.” Our staff at Integrated Design Systems fully embraces this same philosophy.

Then, that concept is extended to generate appealing, award-winning and innovative industrial design products based on ergonomics, aesthetics, functionality, and manufacturing ease. The result? We’re consistently able to boost our clients’ sales, maximize their end-user’s value, and substantially improve their profits.

Honesty is the best creative policy.

Our design philosophy is simple. It’s based on honesty, integrity, and a continuing commitment, combined with exceptional creativity, knowledge, and resources to fulfill every obligation throughout each project. Though honesty is rarely discussed in business, it’s essential for any business transaction, is firmly rooted in all great designs, and clears one’s perceptions to clearly identify the most important parameters for a product.

To extend honesty one step further, we form partnerships with our clients as well as their vendors to create a high level of trust so essential to successfully exploring new ideas and developing breakthrough new products.

90% of our clients work with us again.

The Bottom Line: Integrated Design Systems doesn’t just deliver an endless stream of industrial design solutions that work. We’re proud to say that more than 90% of our satisfied clients have returned to working with us, time and again for numerous projects.
