Comprehensive product design and development services

While 3D printing and other technological advancements in CAD design and manufacturing have changed the game, there are core fundamentals of the product design process that will always stay the same. Product design and development is often a non-linear process involving many revisions, reimaginings, and recalibrations. Even so, an effective product design process is characterized by three core phases: Analysis, conception, and implementation. These stages are not wholly distinct, as the designer will move back and forth between them continually during the design process. 

  • Analysis: This is the initial stage where the goal is to first define what problem needs to be solved by the new design and then to determine the most efficient route to solve that problem. This is a critical stage in the design process. The design problem becomes the selling point of the product and the value proposition you have to offer customers down the road. The product design and development process is fundamentally centered around the task of providing an elegant solution to a real-world problem. This is the phase of the design cycle when preliminary research is undertaken to identify the problem and channel the direction of product development. 
  • Conception: The product begins to take shape. The problems identified during the analysis phase become the design goals that the product will need to satisfy to succeed in the market. The niche into which the product will fit is clarified, and focus is given to the design project. This phase represents the shift from identifying the problems to be solved to thinking about the product that will solve them.
  • Implementation: This phase takes place in tandem with the conception phase. Brainstorming is the method, and innovation is the goal. The idea is to come up with a limited selection of feasible and appropriate solutions. It now becomes possible to develop a plan for the actual creation of the product. Prototypes can now be generated and compared, materials selected, and the contesting solutions can be evaluated to determine the ideal implementation. 

We help our clients through any or all of these design phases. The right freelance product designer can guide your project through each step of the process. Our services are flexible to reflect the different points where inventors and entrepreneurs may need assistance in the design cycle. We offer professional, experienced designers who can assist you with the initial analysis, and we offer custom-tailored services to help you meet your project goals at any other stage of development. Let us know where you are in the design and development process, and we'll meet you there. 

Wrapping it up with a bow: Packaging design and marketing presentations

Designing an excellent, innovative, and functional product is a great start. But the product will never be successful if you can't get it into the hands and homes of consumers. Developing a compelling and creative packaging design for your invention is almost as important as the design of the product itself. They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but they also say a picture is worth a thousand words, yet we keep putting covers on books! Our creative packaging designers will ensure that your product gets the attractive package it needs to be successful on the market. You can also take advantage of our marketing display and exhibition services to create professional and compelling retail displays.

Gadget designs – Do you have a gadget that you are ready to present to the masses? Cad Crowd freelance designers can take any sketch or concept and turn it into a full-fledged 3D model. Whether you're looking to produce your gadget with traditional manufacturing methods or want to create it using 3D printing, our designers can help you take your gadget from an idea to a model that is ready for production.

Jewelry design services – If anything requires a personalized approach, it is jewelry making. Even if a piece if mass-produced, you want to ensure that it meets the aesthetic and design standards of your customers. Our team of pre-vetted and experienced designers will use premier CAD software to develop new, unique, or customized models of jewelry. Regardless of the need, our team is capable of helping you produce exceptional pieces of jewelry that exceed the expectations of your customers.

Electronic product design services – Electronics impact everyone. From phones and laptops to everything in between, our lives are consumed with technology. This reason is why exceptional electronic product design is vital to the device development process. You want to ensure your electronic device is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and safe. Our designers are adept at taking your concepts and specifications and turning them into detailed 3D models. It is essential that you feel confident in the product you are selling to consumers. Our electronic product design services allow you to do just that.

New invention design services – In the past, inventors had to figure out how to develop their ideas into real products that consumers can purchase on their own. Today, more resources are available for new inventors to receive the support they need. Cad Crowd believes in the power of new ideas and creativity, and we pride ourselves in supporting the efforts of new inventor ideas. 

Our designers can work with you to turn your concept into a realistic 3D rendering, and can then further develop your proposed item into a 3D printable STL file for prototyping. From there, you can finalize the details of your design and then turn it into an item or device that can be mass-produced. We are a one-stop-shop for your invention design needs as we work with product designers, freelance engineers, and rapid manufacturing firms to help you move through the product development process.

Prototype design services – Before you mass produce that item or device, you need a prototype to test out its functionality and ensure it meets your—and your customer’s—expectations. Cad Crowd understands the importance of this process and is here to help make the product design process a little less overwhelming. Our designers can work with you to produce a 2D or 3D prototype model that can be presented to internal and external stakeholders for feedback. We have a variety of ways that we can create early production prototypes, so be sure to check out the prototype design services page for more details on how we can help.

Toys and games product design services – Are you an entrepreneur, game enthusiast, or toy and game company that wants to produce the next plaything for your audience? Well, you have come to the right place. We understand that each toy or game has to not only capture your audience’s attention but also operate as needed. Our designers are more than willing to work alongside you to create a customizable toy or game that is uniquely for your audience.

Fashion design and modeling services – Developing a new fashion trend or style? While fashion sketches have always been at the forefront of fashion design, many designers realize the substantial impact CAD programs and 3D modeling can have on fashion designs. 

Three-dimensional CAD modeling is excellent for developing fashion designs as it allows designers to create clothing for virtual models. From there, you and your company can quickly and efficiently alter clothing as you see fit. As a result, you can test and showcase designs without having to go through the physical manufacturing process until you are sure about your design plans.

There are numerous applications for product design and corresponding 3D modeling. We understand that regardless of whether you are developing a new toy, or are in the process of building a unique electronic device, exceptional product design is crucial to your product development process. That is why Cad Crowd has partnered with a global network of freelance designers. We are dedicated to connecting you with world-class and pre-vetted professionals who are committed to creating product designs that meet the expectations of you and your clientele.

The benefits of outsourcing your product design services

Product designs enable you to see how your new idea will function, look, and operate in the real world. It also allows you to model your work for marketing and branding purposes. However, hiring a full-time in-house product designer can be expensive and time-consuming. This reason—among others—is why outsourcing your product design needs to a freelancer is the way to go. Here are a few additional benefits to outsourcing your product design services:

  • Find someone that directly fits your niche – Maybe you need someone to create a model of an innovative type of clothing or a specific component to an electronic product. Outsourcing your product design process allows you to find someone with this particular experience.
  • Save on time and costs – When you outsource your product designs, you are only paying for what you need. As a result, you can better plan out the time needed for a project and budget to only pay for a specific block of work time.
  • Free up your current staff – Whether you are a staff of one or 20, your team must work on core business activities that only they are familiar with. Outsourcing the design process enables them to stay focused on events specific to your business operations.

These advantages only scratch the service of how outsourcing truly benefits your company. If you are ready to outsource your product designs, be sure to check out our flexible matching process that takes the difficulty and time out of finding the best talent.
