Every project is unique, so we adapt our approach to fit the needs. 

Here is a range of product development strategies we could apply to your project or business. If you only need help with a specific aspect of your project, we can provide these in packages. Get in touch to find out more.

Diagnostics.

This stage focuses on research and analysis within the product area and its current market by looking into things such as competitors, materials, potential manufacturing methods, aesthetics, consumer behaviour and usability. We discuss everything with you along the way so that the project is in line with your business aims.

CAD/Design Engineering.

Using industry standard software, the concept is developed with dimensional and functional accuracy. CAD software allows us to analyse, optimise and communicate the design to you and potential manufacturers. 

Concept Development.

Our aim when creating concepts is to ensure feasibility, manufacturability and commercial appeal. Our concept design process includes highly detailed sketch development in the form of presentations and quick prototypes to see aspects of the design in reality.

Prototyping/Model Making.

This stage is focused on bringing your product to life. Physical/functional models of the product are created to present, test or assess. SLA/FDM 3D printers, machinery and tools allow us to create accurate prototypes and test design solutions quickly and efficiently. Depending on the outcome, cycles of modification and testing may be necessary to perfect the product.

Delivery Pack.

Technical documentation is created to communicate the details of the design and any other requirements for the project to move forward. This can include: technical drawings, physical models, photography, videos, 3D photo-realistic renderings and animations.
