REI in the News: Co-op Featured in New Book on Design and Innovation

Available on bookshelves next month, Design Is How It Works: How the Smartest Companies Turn Products into Icons by Jay Greene features REI as one of eight companies that incorporates “design thinking” into its business strategies.

For those interested in a sneak peek, the Seattle Times recently featured a portion of the co-op’s chapter at REI: Taking Design to New Heights. Additional information about the author and book is available at
