[...] In addition, the company’s co-founders will join Logitech, with Derek Tarnow working full time for the company and Zahra Tashakorina on an ongoing consulting basis, both focusing on design for products that complement the smartphone.Derek Tarnow, co-founder of TT Design Labs, said: “The big winners with today’s announcement are smartphone users. In Logitech, we’ve found a true partner that shares our focus on creating great products designed to improve people’s experiences with the technology they love.
