With a degree in Communication from the University of Southern California, 10 years of agency experience in digital (web and mobile) design and development, and after studying product design with instructors from Art Center College of Design, John Reid stands at the intersection of people, product, and promotion.
While building a portfolio consisting of projects for companies like Nike, the NFL, the NBA, and for brands like Jill Scott and Jay’Z’s Artful Dodger, John saw the power that successfully integrated products had on consumers and the world. Such power should not be taken for granted, and after identifying the “Elevation Economy” and it’s demand for enriching products and entertainment, John decided to launch SKY – the first “Elevated Design” studio.
From a background of over 30 years of product and program development experience, Dr. Reiher has integrated developmental psychology, social psychology, neuroscience, consciousness research, and personal development into a strategic and practical framework for the undersanding and elevation of contemporary products and programs in today’s accelerated and rapidly changing consumer marketplace.
Rob brings a broad combination of training and experience from the fields of business, communication, education, media, entertainment and psychology. He has been actively involved as a researcher, speaker and product and program development consultant.( http://www.innertainment.org/a-partial-list-of-clients/) In the past, Robert has also served as an adjunct professor of Consumer Psychology at Woodbury University in Burbank California, Sober College in Woodland Hills California, and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
Robert has co-authored two books, What Kids Buy Why and Kidnapped: How Irresponsible Marketers Are Stealing the Minds of Your Children with Daniel Acuff Ph.D. Reiher and Acuff discuss the developmental parameters for creating enriching entertainment and media along with how parents can determine and evaluate positive consumer products for their children.
Robert is currently completing a new book called the Challenge of Choice, focused on the rapidly changing circles of influence in contemporary society and how these powerful forces are effecting how our children think, feel, communicate, act and “choose” their future.
