Integrated Vision Inc pursues opportunities in design and innovation, both within Industrial Design support of industry clients and product development of our own and with partners.
Russ Strong founded Integrated Vision after 15 years of engineering and R&D leadership with Sperry and Ford New Holland, then transition into Industrial Design — with Integrated Vision receiving contract for global styling of Fiat’s newly combined FiatAgri and Ford New Holland. Today, Integrated Vision brings experience and resource connections from over 80 industry programs with industry leaders such as CNH (New Holland, CaseIH), John Deere, Caterpillar, AGCO (Massey Ferguson, Fendt, Challenger), DR Power, Vasa and others. Lead inventor on over 60 patents, Russ brings unique support to engineering. In styling, Russ excels in expanding on a brand’s existing design cues — on trends and leading. Russ’ work is integrated within teams, balancing pushing the envelope on features and program speed — connecting design talent and supplier support — and executing refined outcomes for production and market success. Russ also aspires to help others advance their careers (see his online course “Growing the ‘YOU’ of Innovation Power”).

Like the board game “Settlers of Catan”, the challenge is making the most of your “resources” and “settlements” (existing products) — and growing strategically. Similar, engaging innovation “resources” (perspectives, talent and experience) “builds roads” and produces new “settlements” (ideas, concepts and design). With IV, Russ Strong adds his experience and industry insights — and facilitates putting “meat on the bones”, going that step beyond the wall of sticky notes and nailing down value outcomes and outlining actions.
