DEVELOPMENT

Product Design and Development

We take concepts from ideas to reality. Our product design and development approach is underpinned by a broad understanding of materials and processes. The design development stage is about bringing the concept to life, ensuring its beauty is not only maintained but enhanced through technical development.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

PHYSICAL PROTOTYPING

Test rigs and proof of concept prototypes; ergonomic foam studies; aesthetic models; and file preparation for all CNC based prototyping systems.

DESIGN ENGINEERING

Design for Manufacture informs every stage of our product design development process, where our design output is underpinned by our understanding of the technical and economic challenges of the project. producing A1 surface CAD files suitable for industrial production; drafting technical reports; Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to assess the structural characteristics of our designs.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Managing the design process – corresponding with stakeholders including clients, manufacturers, subcontractors, IP attorneys and product users; commissioning and managing prototyping and fabrication; overseeing site installation and roadmapping projects, ensuring the most efficient use of time.

CONCEPT

Ideas are at the heart of what we do. We take special care interpreting the design requirements of the project and crafting a well informed and creative response. The concept stage is about understanding what is at the heart of the project and defining what makes it special.

PRESENTATION

The same careful consideration that is applied to the concept and development phase is also practised at the presentation stage. The presentation phase is about telling the story of what is special about a design and celebrating it.
