\ˈshē-ˈbü-ˈlir-ˈrü\

SHIBULERU is a phonetically distorted and lost in translation word for calipers in German (Schiebelehre). Calipers are an important work tool for any industrial designer so we started to like it as company name. It can also be yelled out nicely and the domain name was easy to get.

ABOUT SHIBULERU

We design. The work we do is influenced by our passion to transform design challenges into engaging products and lasting experiences. In order to move from vision to compelling and tangible reality, we gather intelligence to inform design. We look for what people are saying even when they lack the words. We know how to find the most important problems to solve. We understand where to focus energy for the greatest impact.

OUR CREATIVE VALUE CHAIN

RAMP up from zero to Production. How we find the first piece of intelligence, from user behavior to business model, how we build on the insights and how we create products that are manufacturable follows our proven process. RAMP allows us to design user centered and with business clarity based on facts rather than intuition.

 
  R    RECON TO REVEAL   We have the ability to seeing the world in surprising ways to spot unknown facts that spark creativity. Resourceful enough to find quick and clever ways to take on inevitable, unforeseen challenges as they appear

  P    PUT IT THROUGH THE PACES   Intelligently designed ideas are far from static. They are conceptually strong, yet pliable. This allows them to adapt to new conditions in an ever changing world. They’re engineered to evolve.

FOUNDER

"Value is created where pain is relieved. Design is the driver for innovative brands, products and services that create good business and relieve pain. To illustrate this idea, I founded the San Francisco based design firm SHIBULERU."

Before launching SHIBULERU, Lukas was a senior designer at IDEO in Palo Alto.

Lukas frequently lectured industrial design, innovation process and design thinking at FHNW, University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, and he was invited as guest lecturer to CCA, California College of Art.

Business Insider named Lukas as one of the 75 most influential designers in technology.
