When he stumbled across an industry stunted by taboo, Ethan saw an opportunity to test the limits of design as a fulcrum for change. He founded Jimmyjane (warning: link goes to adult content) with the goal of bringing “Pleasure to the People” – and the intention of upending the sex accessories market along the way. Ethan will undress the Jimmyjane story to reveal lessons he’s learned on reimagining a product category, and how these lessons are informing his new role leading Venture Design at frog.
Ethan Imboden is VP & Head of Venture Design at frog, and founder of Jimmyjane, the design & innovation leader in the burgeoning pleasure products industry. Prior to Jimmyjane, he dedicated his time to brand and product innovation working with some of the world's top design firms, including Arnell Group, Astro, ECCO Design and a previous stint with frog.
