Tektronix 3 and 4 Series Hit the Market

This past summer our friends at Tektronix released the 3 Series MDO (Mixed Domain Oscilloscope) and the 4 Series MSO (Mixed Signal Oscilloscope). Emulating the 5 Series MSO design language, the 3 Series MDO and 4 Series MSO are Tektronix’s newest mid-range oscilloscopes offering high-definition touch screens, enabling engineers to view digital data streams, ongoing measurements, and database information in addition to the conventional analog traces. The new oscilloscopes simplify the development of embedded products, ranging from televisions to IoT and radio-based devices. We’re honored to have worked with Tektronix on the design language of their flagship products. Visit our 5 Series MSO case study for a look back on our first design collaboration with Tektronix.

Meet Our New UX Director

To boost our UX capabilities, we are excited to announce our newest addition to the Tactile team, Marcus Pape. Welcome to the team! Marcus joins us as the UX Director to lead our UX design team to help facilitate collaboration from idea to conception. Here’s a little more about Marcus: Marcus is a designer, builder, and creative leader with over 20 years of experience. His passion for solving challenging problems and delivering meaningful experiences has shaped a diverse career spanning physical and digital product design, marketing, and branding. During the dawn of digital marketing, Marcus worked at agencies and startups creating immersive interactive experiences, before spending the next two decades helping product companies bring ideas to life. Prior to Tactile, Marcus spent over six years as a design leader at Amazon, helping build the global advertising design and user experience organization. He also oversaw the cross-platform customer experience, brand systems, and creative optimization. Marcus left Amazon last year, taking half the year off before spinning up a consulting practice which eventually brought him to Tactile. When not working, he can be found in Magnolia with his wife Jenny and dog Eva walking the neighborhood or exploring the beaches and trails of Discovery Park. Other passions include a diverse background and interests in sustainability, travel, history, culture, (all) water sports, and anything 80s. One fun fact—at the ripe age of five, Marcus lived in the jungles of Papua New Guinea with his family.

Tactile Opens New Studio in Boston

Today, Tactile is proud to announce we’ve opened a new studio in Boston, Massachusetts. The studio will be led by newly appointed, VP of Design, Rich Hanks. A Massachusetts native, Rich has been a Design Director in the Seattle studio for the past six years and prior to joining Tactile, he worked in-house at Microsoft and Motorola. Why Boston? We specialize in designing tools for professionals in the medical and industrial product industries, so Boston seemed to be the right fit for us to open an additional design studio. Tactile brings a multidisciplinary design approach made up of industrial design, interaction design, and mechanical engineering to the East Coast. Our new studio gets us closer to our current partnerships and gives us an opportunity to connect with the growing Medtech innovation community in Boston.
