Dolby to Buy BrightSide

JDi Design plays an integral role in Brightside success story.

JDi Design was asked to design and help engineer an identity for Brightside’s flagship product, the DR37-P.

We took a critical look at the market and competitor products creating a solid foundation from which to work.

Concepts created by JDi utilised contemporary materials and finishes embodying the essence of Brightsides HDR display technology.

Our hands-on approach took the product from an idea to reality helping pave the way for the company’s acquisition by Dolby Laboratories.
