flux in the design biz

It seems the design world is in a state of constant flux.

Flextronics bought frogdesign a while back, to strengthen its position as an uber Original Design Manufacturer (ODM).

Now (via core 77),
Miami based ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky has purchased a minority stake in SF-based fuseproject. CP+B has been responsible for the latest ad campaigns of such heavy hitters as Burger King, method, and Virgin Air. One client shared in common is MINI.

With fuseproject's slant towards brand and strategy, its easy to imagine the two firms combining to do some pretty dynamic work.
A partnership to watch, as there's obviously a lot of overlap between this new partnership and where IDEO has been growing recently.
