Aaron Soloway

SR Designer & Engineer

Aaron Soloway is a Senior Designer / Engineer at IDEO. His favorite place is where art, music, and technology are naturally one: design. Sculpting fluid connections between these often discrete disciplines into new ideas is what he finds meaningful.

His point of view has been wrought by deep work in research and development, extensive audio engineering, and a lifelong devotion to music—from reverse engineering mammalian auditory biology to create a robust sniper localization system for the Office of Naval Research, to working on a human mobility aid device for the profoundly visually impaired using echolocation for the National Institute of Health. At IDEO, his design and engineering has also spanned cutting-edge health products, connected home devices, interactive hotel experiences, reimagined shopping interactions, and the design of novel energy systems.

Among other things, he's also made hundreds of hours of binaural recordings and loves spending time in Iceland.
