San Francisco-based Ammunition Design Group is a design firm founded in 2007 by Robert Brunner, the design director who hired Jony Ive at Apple. Ammunition can sometimes feel like Silicon Valley's go-to gun-for-hire when it comes to design. The independent firm—which specializes in the integration of hardware, software, and graphic design—has done high-profile projects for everyone from Polaroid to Square. In 2016, Ammunition won the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Product Design, widely considered the equivalent of an Oscar in the design world. And in 2018, the studio had one of its most prolific years, shipping 15 consumer-facing products (and another 15 that weren’t made public). That included the second-generation smart oven June, the Acorns debit card, the Deep Sentinel security camera, and a scooter for the $15 billion transportation company Lyft.
